Marissa grew up in New Mexico so as you might guess, her most favorite food is her mom’s green chile! Working at Make-A-Wish seemed like something out of her dreams when she applied for the job, but we are certainly glad she did.
After Marissa finished a year of service with Mercy Volunteer Corps and moved back to New Mexico, Make-A-Wish’s message of joy and the wonderful works that can be fulfilled drew her in to become a part of the Make-A-Wish team. When she isn’t working hard at Make-A-Wish, she can be found singing and playing mariachi with her husband near by!
If she weren’t already such an awesome superhero fighting for good, she would probably trade places with Wonder Woman and maybe add on the power to fly. One day Marissa hopes to see the New Seven Wonders of the World and on the flight there she would bring along her favorite book, The Shack! With a joyful spirit Marissa is an amazing addition to the office and a great Program Assistant.
