Marissa is that rare young professional who is wise beyond her years, a complete self-starter where reins are more effective than a whip, and whose is always thinking about the next step. She is a constant learner, tinkerer, and go-getter. Get her on your team, and then try and keep up with M. I'm proud to see how quickly she is growing into a top professional. She has been instrumental in helping me launch and grow the Business of Story platform internationally.
Park Howell, president of Park&Co and founder of Business of Story
Marissa is a first-class marketer with an impressive set of skills across many different channels. And she’s always getting better. From the moment I first met Marissa, she impressed me with her intelligence, problem solving abilities and knowledge of all things digital and social. Clients love her diligence and communication skills. Co-workers love her enthusiasm and collaborative ways. And baristas love the vast sums of money she spends to remain caffeinated throughout the day so she can keep pumping out the good work. I highly, highly recommend Marissa for any career opportunity she may pursue.

Marissa was very helpful as I was in startup mode and in the first year of business. She is well skilled and taught me about all things SEO, for which I am very grateful. I especially appreciated Marissa's proactive communication, boundary setting, and true focus. When it came to how I could best communicate my message, Marissa had timely and well thought through recommendations. Thank you Marissa!

SEO is difficult, and Marissa made it easy! We worked with Marissa during our recent website redesign. Marissa worked on the SEO for all of our webpages. She did an incredible job of optimizing our web pages, writing meta-descriptions, keyword research, and providing us with expert SEO recommendations for our newly redesigned website. Since working with Marissa we have seen a huge increase in our organic search referral rate. Marissa was very professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her for your next SEO project!

Marissa has been a tremendous help with promotion and the release of my latest nonfiction book, The Last Chicago Boss. Not only does she initiate regular posts and promotion to all social media outlets, but she is also proactive in making media connections and pursuing speaking opportunities and other events. She is skilled and business savvy and has been an invaluable asset to my marketing needs. I highly recommend her services.

In the time I worked with Marissa, I can attest to her knowledge, professionalism and mastery of her field. Marissa balanced a large account load and killed it in every detail. A true social media maven, I would be thrilled to work with Marissa again.
