Marino brings to her new position a strong background in cancer care, having worked in both inpatient oncology case management and outpatient chemotherapy infusion services at Mon Health Medical Center in Morgantown, West Virginia, prior to relocating to the Lowcountry late last year.

Marino graduated magna cum laude from West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She went on to earn accreditation as an oncology certified nurse (OCN) through the Oncology Nursing Society. 

Last year, Marino also earned the prestigious designation of certified breast care nurse (CBCN), the only nationally accredited breast care certification available exclusively to registered nurses. To receive the designation from the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation, applicants must have a minimum of 1,000 hours of breast care nursing experience and pass a rigorous examination that tests their knowledge in the specialty of breast care nursing.
