A Diverse Communications Career

Marissa is a communications professional with 18 years of diverse content media and editorial experience including roles in TV news, travel journalism, high-tech PR and corporate media relations.

What I Do:



I have a diverse portfolio of travel writing experience. I write articles, features and books for major media. I also write travel content marketing content for companies including PR materials, website copy and company blog content.


As a public relations professional, I have managed international PR campaigns and placed stories in major media. I have experience organizing press events, managing special projects and strategizing media relations campaigns.


I am a seasoned PR professional and high-tech blog writer. I know how to tell the best story angles that would resonate with key audiences. I  communicate  high-level concepts in ways that are meaningful and compelling.


I am also a women’s fiction author. My romantic comedy, Chasing Athens, was published in 2014.  It has earned top reviews from international audiences and has been recognized with a Five-Star Readers’ Choice award.
