She achieved a number of awards, including First Place at the International Competition for Young Composers in Belgrade, Serbia in 1997. Her works have been performed on many stages, in both classical and sacred music venues. In Belgrade, she had two important premieres in collaboration with the Church Transfiguration from Belgrade, with the compositions “The Prayer” for soprano and mixed choir in 2009, and “Svetilan” for mixed choir in 2010.

Marina has written compositions across a wide range of musical styles, including contemporary classical music, sacred music, ambient, and hard rock. Her diverse musical talents came to the attention of Professor Dr. Karlheinz Essl of The Institut for Composition. This is the only school of higher learning in Europe focused on research in the composition and learning of electronic music. Marina accepted an offer to join them for the 2011/2012 school year.
