Dr. Marin was born and raised in Puerto Rico. She attended undergraduate school at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA, where she completed a BS in Psychobiology. She pursued medical school and pediatrics residency at the University of Puerto Rico.
After graduating residency, Dr. Marin moved with her husband, Dr. Torres, to Virginia in 2005. She worked in private pediatric practice for four years. Then, she found an opportunity to work with underserved children at the Inovacares clinic for children in Falls Church, VA. There, she was able to care for children of all backgrounds. She developed a special interest in preventive medicine and the care of common chronic medical problems in children, particularly obesity, asthma, and attention and behavior problems.
In 2013, together with her husband, an Obstetrics and Gynecology physician, she moved to Tyler, Texas to continue to work with women and children in need of medical services. Both she and her husband have since then, worked at the Family Circle of Care (TFCC). At TFCC, she is in charge of specialty clinics where she and clinic staff educate and treat children with asthma, attention and behavior problems, and overweight and obese children (“Healthy Kids” Program). She has developed a group visit model where several children are seen together for common medical problems. During the visit, children and their families are seen and examined by Dr. Marin, while they are also educated on disease prevention and treatment.
