Student Engagement Officer | Southeastern United States
Marissa joined the ISEP team in May 2018 and is excited to engage with students about study abroad opportunities. A proud G.R.I.T.S. (Girl Raised in the South), Marissa is a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina and is currently based in Atlanta. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communication from High Point University and navigated the corporate marketing world for two years before pursing her passion in international education. Prior to joining ISEP, Marissa was a member of CISabroad’s Study Abroad Institute training program, where she assisted with student recruitment, university relations and marketing. Marissa is particularly interested in diversity and inclusion, and is eager to collaborate with colleagues on ways to increase representation within education abroad. Her love of new cultures stems from her personal travel experiences to over two dozen destinations, and her study abroad semester in England. In her free time, you’ll find Marissa eating her way through new cities, snapping photos for the ‘gram and online shopping.
