Manager of Education Initiatives
Marissa first discovered Donate Life Northwest after her granddad received a kidney transplant and her mom anonymously donated a kidney. Now working for DLNW, Marissa engages with students in schools and driver’s education classes to educate about donation and transplantation and share her story. Holding a BA in Health Education and a MPH in Health Promotion and Health Behavior, Marissa brings experience coordinating and supporting volunteers, developing health education materials, planning events, and providing education in various formats. Having lived in Oregon most of her life, Marissa enjoys discovering the world through books, movies, plays, and –her favorite—traveling.
