Meet Marina Umali, dedicated Board Member of the IFSG, Mom to Emilie and Feng Shui Consultant and Designer based in Paramus, New Jersey – from Tanya Jahnke, Director of the IFSG Virtual Chapter
Q: Tell us a little bit about how you found Feng Shui, or rather how Feng Shui found you?
A: Marina can’t remember a time that she wasn’t interested in Feng Shui! As an Interior Designer, Marina was intrigued enough to study Universal Feng Shui at the Metropolitan Institute of Design in New York in 2011. Marina has a background in psychology and has always understood space as a language all its own. She has always been adept at “reading” the energy of a space. Feng Shui bridged the two worlds of Design and Psychology.
Q: What is your favorite thing about Feng Shui?
A: Marina loves making clients into Feng Shui believers too! Marina loves to listen to her clients and help to suggest small changes that net big results! A recent client that was looking for love is slated to get married in the Spring!
Q: What do you love most about the IFSG?
A: Marina said that she loves everything about the community, but most of all not feeling alone in her work. She said she loves feeling connected and the conversations and feedback she gets from engaging on the IFSG Facebook Virtual Chapter.
Q: What do you do to uplift your own personal Chi?
A: Marina loves to travel, do yoga and spend time with her husband and daughter.
Q: What are your work aspirations for the coming year?
A: Marina would love to do more retail design work and delve deeper into her BTB Feng Shui studies. She is also considering writing a book about superstition, based on her Russian ancestors.
