Born on International Women’s Day, Marianna was always destined to fly the flag for the sisterhood. A Spanish-Irish background bestowed a mischievous temperament with a certain ‘joie de vivre’. After jigging her way across Europe as a lawyer, she eventually settled in London finding herself on the other side of the table as an adviser to government.

Marianna dreams of a diverse gender-neutral world where quotas are no longer necessary. Her school motto, “Action not Words” taught her the importance of making a difference now.

If she’s not hosting dinner parties, Marianna can usually be found practising her backhand on the tennis court or plotting the next travel escapade.
