Her experience working with medical patients, and especially with medically fragile children, fortified her profound empathy and focused her attention on developing pain control techniques while managing patient treatment options and outcomes.
As a native of New Mexico, Marisa graduated as a Medical Assistant and began working in the social services field where her passion for helping people began with assisting medically fragile and behaviorally challenged children. She has greatly enjoyed helping these unique people in achieving their life goals along with also developing a program for assisting them to integrate into the local community. In 2001, Marisa diversified her clientele by working with adults with dual-diagnosis, where she spent 11 years working side by side with the Development Disabilities Division. Her love of people and desire to assist individuals with achieving their life goals was greatly fulfilled.
