Marina Baroff

Senior Director, The Clearity Foundation

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who would describe Marina as “retired.” After a long career as a healthcare executive, she eschewed the traditional leisure activities, instead choosing to dive headlong into new, community-focus pursuits. We’re thrilled she’s chosen ElderHelp as one of them.

With two masters degrees – one from George Washington University, and the other from Cal Berkeley, Marina has dedicated a fair share of her working years to public health. Ten years ago, upon her “retirement,” she helped launch and expand a startup data tech company with the mission of connecting health and socia5 service agencies. In 2014, she engaged ElderHelp in this data-sharing project. Through this collaboration, she got to know our leadership, and our organization. In 2019, she joined our board.

Marina had a near-perfect model for aging with dignity in place. Her father lived in his own home until recently passing at age 96. He taught classes through a senior care program (on Zoom, nonetheless,) and frequented the gym five days a week. It was from his example she realized that one can live a vivid life at any age.

Collaboration is central to Marina’s goal as a Board Member with ElderHelp. She believes that by incorporating different referral sources, across many sectors such as housing, transportation, and nutrition, we can bring scale and size to ElderHelp, ultimately reaching even more seniors with these life-changing resources.
