Prior to that, Marissa worked for the communications and lobbying firm, Mercury Public Affairs.
Marissa received a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Lehigh University, where she was an intern for U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Bob Casey.
Marissa resides in NYC, but her true loyalty is to her home state of New Jersey.
