Philomena Marino is proud to be a third-generation resident of Barrio Logan. Growing up in this family neighborhood taught her how the actions of good neighbors’ support and add to the enjoyment of the community. Many of the long-time residents are the same neighbors who watched over her as a little girl and were part of the deeply nurturing atmosphere that is Barrio Logan.
She takes a personal interest in the elderly and is actively working with the Environmental Health Coalition to improve the Barrio Logan community. She has been instrumental in the community-based research project working towards the implementation of truck routing there and in a truck ordinance for residential San Diego. This ultimately improves the health of all residents regardless of age.
She’s a quality systems/project management professional with 25 years’ experience in the biotech industry. As a graduate of UCSD and National University, Ms. Marino earned a BA, BS, and MBA, as well as a Health Education Specialist Certification. With her education and passion, she advocates and supports egalitarian principles.
