Marinda is a JRF Scholar and a graduate of Wiregrass Georgia Technical College and has her Associate's degree in Nursing.

She is a natural caretaker and says she chose nursing, not for the paycheck, but because she loves the feeling of helping others. "I am a single mother of 2, soon to be 3. It took aleap of faith to return to school for my next level nursing degree. I am pleased to announce that after many long days of studying, I successfully completed my classes and I finished strong. I am grateful for the Jeannette Rankin Foundation because I could not have done this without them!"
