Marissa earned a bachelor’s degree in Neurobiology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and she is currently applying to physical therapy school. She loves working with kids because they bring such a positive energy with them and really brighten her day. Her interest in pediatrics began when she was young, as she is the oldest of five kids! She often babysat for her family, friends, and neighbors. During her undergraduate studies, she worked in a daycare and nannied, both of which gave her experience taking care of kids from as young as three months old up to ten years old. She is so excited to be a part of the CI team and work closely with the kiddos and their families! In her free time, Marissa enjoys hiking, kayaking, and playing tennis with her husband Lucas and spending time with their puppy Georgia.
