Martina is an English and History teacher at Fusion Academy Mission Viejo. After graduating from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with a Bachelor’s degree in public relations and sociology, and Cal State Fullerton with a Master’s in Mass Communications, she is currently finishing up her doctorate in Media Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A Southern California Native, Martina was eager to move back home after completing coursework in Illinois and now lives in Mission Viejo, close to family and friends.
Martina is interested in many things, but mostly television, chocolate and dogs (not necessarily in that order!). In her free time, she enjoys taking walks and hikes around beautiful south Orange County, listening to Michael Jackson and playing with her parents’ adorable Golden Retriever, Shadow. Some of her passions include media literacy, feminism and reality television.
