Dr. Marina Boucher grew up in North Carolina, spending many hours performing horse husbandry to support her passion for Western riding. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she became interested in the One Health Initiative while researching honey bee behavior. Relocating to Florida, Marina worked for the South Florida Wildlife Center before specializing in birds of prey at the Frost Museum of Science. She then fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian by obtaining her degree from the University of California at Davis. During this time, she worked on a project to improve animal health and food production in Nicaragua and volunteered at an animal clinic in Costa Rica. Upon graduation, she began practicing at the South and Central Maui Animal Clinics. Marina loves surfing, so the opportunity to practice in Maui is truly ideal, and she is grateful to serve the pets of Maui while experiencing Hawaiian culture.
