About Me

Marisa is the Programs and Services coordinator here at High Sierra AHEC. Before AHEC, Marisa graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Social Studies in 2019. During her time as an educator, she further developed her passion for education and lifelong learning and discovered her passions in social service and working with youth in the community. Marisa is excited to be part of AHEC because she gets to work with a team and organization that allows her to continue to hone her passion for educating and providing opportunities to underserved and underrepresented communities. When she is not in the office or studying for school, she enjoys indoor gardening, traveling, cooking and baking, and spending time with her fiancé and their two cats.
