Maria Primavera Marinas


Maria was born and raised in Libya before her family settled back in the Philippines during her high school years, which is where Maria later graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Travel & Tourism. However, a love of travel brought her to the UAE and Maria was working as an Event Coordinator at a prestigious Art Gallery in Abu Dhabi before joining GVC, bringing with her a super-calm manner and great organisational skills!

Maria loves the outdoors, camping and hiking when weather and time allow and, not surprisingly, Maria loves to visit Art Exhibitions.

For Maria, family is everything and is what motivates her to always put her heart into everything she does, to never stop learning and to lend a hand whenever and wherever is needed, values that we love!

Pets have always been a big part of Maria’s life, whether cats and dogs growing up in the family home or, since moving to the UAE, fostering rescue cats…., and Maria is now the proud parent to three foster fails, Tommy, Bobby and IV!
