Marissa recently graduated from Tulane University, where she received a Bachelors in Science in Public Health and a Bachelors in Arts in Spanish. She has first-hand experience working with marginalized and vulnerable populations in San Francisco, Montana, New Orleans, and Argentina. As a San Francisco native, she feels strongly that the homelessness problem is an issue that needs immediate attention. With a growing interest in women’s health, she hopes to work directly with homeless women and foster a relationship in order to address their health needs. Through this relationship, she intends to give a voice to this underrepresented population and preserve their dignity.
