Marissa has been developing leaders across the United States for over a decade, and has deep experience facilitating workshops, retreats, communities of practice, and learning engagements. Since 2013, her work has touched the lives of over 10,000 professionals from New York to Nebraska to California to Texas, and she has supported 100+ schools and companies in building strong, impactful, and sustainable leaders, programs, and infrastructure. Influenced by her own journey through burnout, loneliness, and frustration in the workplace, Marissa is driven by an intense desire to make the world of work more compassionate and human-centered. She seeks to teach others (and more importantly show others) how to authentically, sustainably, and equitably disrupt destructive cycles in leadership to build community, transform hearts, spark joy, and change the world. Marissa has a Masters of Social Work from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis and holds a Bachelors Degree from Franklin and Marshall College.
