Marissa believes that creative and quality content is the key to effective mass media communication.  After graduating from DePaul University with a Bachelor’s in Communications and Media Studies, she began creating multimedia content for nonprofits as a workshop facilitator for Video Machete, teaching youth to use video as a medium to share their unique stories.
