Early life and education[edit]

Born in Køge in 1970, the family first moved to Vigersted by Ringsted and later to Svebølle near Kalundborg where Vind had most of her childhood, adolescence and adult life.

After receiving her degree in 1995, she worked as hospital laboratory technician from Rigshospitalet. The degree led to several jobs, including a year in Norway and later in 2000 a job in Novozymes in Kalundborg. Marianne Vind was elected as a union representative and later chair for Dansk Laborant-Forening (2006-2011). She also obtained a master diploma in Communication from Roskilde University.
