Hey there! I’m Marissa- an LA resident with a passion for service. I became a Big Sister through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles in April 2015, and have been an active member of the “Big” network ever since.
I revel in discovering and sharing experiences with my Little Sister in this amazing city, and wanted to create an outlet for other mentors to learn about low-cost, engaging outing ideas in our backyard. As fun as outings are, youth mentorship is not easy. I also aim to help mentors address challenging issues that come up from time to time in our role.
Outside of my role as a Big Sister, I work full time in ad tech at Centro, where I also lead opportunities to give back through my company’s generous corporate fundraising and volunteering program.
