Maran is doing a residency global health and tropical medicine, in the context of which she is currently working in the surgical department in ZGT hospital in the Netherlands. Before that, she gained experience as a junior doctor in the ICU, gastro-enterology and pediatrics. During her medical studies she went abroad for clerkships in Thailand and Uganda. Her love for (wild) animals and nature started at a young age, but was reignited when she worked as a travel guide in Slovenia. She enjoys outdoor sports on land, at sea and in the air. David Attenbourough is her idol. During her rotation in military medicine, she came to know about Outdoor Medicine and participated in the AWLS course. Later she became an instructor for that course. In 2019-2020 she went along as a medical doctor on an expedition on board of a replica of a 600 b.C. Phoenician sailing vessel, on which she crossed the Atlantic ocean.
