Marissa brings her skills, creativity, and love of design back to an area she is so passionate about.

Marissa graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelors of Science in Interior Design. A forever Hokie, she continues to serve as a mentor and resource to current design students. Outside of the office, you can find Marissa hiking with her husband and pup, working on their 100 year old house, or developing content for her blog, The Squiggly Life.
