Creator and owner of Afrotanica, Martina Marquez Trimiew is an Atlanta-based Registered Nurse, Holistic Health and Wellness Coach, and also holds certifications as a yoga teacher, breathwork and meditation guide, and sound healer. 

A former cardiovascular ICU nurse, Martina has years of experience caring for the hearts of patients post open-heart surgery. After struggling with anxiety, depression, and PTSD related to career burnout, she decided to leave the bedside to focus, instead, on the prevention of chronic diseases through lifestyle change, mindset transformation, and holistic (mind-body-spirit) healing.

Today, Martina continues to care for the hearts of clients and patients, only now she helps them heal from what she calls “emotional heart disease”. Inspired by her own healing journey, Martina created Afrotanica to provide BIPOC with trauma-informed holistic wellness services in order to improve their quality of life and heal intergenerational trauma.
