Marinka’s career kicked off at the age of 17 when she landed a trainee role in a professional recruitment consultancy in Cairns and over the years, Marinka has developed a strong passion for human resources, policies and industrial relations. Marinka now works as a Human Resource Consultant at Human Resource Dynamics.
Born in Cairns and raised in Freshwater, Marinka is a proud local with a keen passion for the Far North Queensland region. She has demonstrated this passion through her involvement with various community organisations – including her committee role with the Cairns Agricultural, Pastoral and Mining Association. In 2017, Marinka won titles as the Cairns Miss Showgirl, North Queensland Miss Show Girl and the Queensland Country Life Miss Show Girl Runner-Up, where she has represented the region on a local, state, and national level – including a sponsored trip to the United States in December last year.
Marinka has been a member of the Cairns Young Chamber of Commerce since the age of 17 and joined the Cairns Emerging Leaders program this year to continue her personal and professional development and to embrace the mentoring experience.
