This year, I have had the opportunity to get to know Marisa as her supervisor. From my first conversation with Marisa, I could tell she was someone who took great pride in her work. She asked thoughtful questions, voiced important concerns, and sought the input of her peers as she navigated her role in a new community. I quickly saw Marisa make strong connections with the staff and take it upon herself to serve as a mentor to her peers. Whenever someone needs help, Marisa is willing to reach out in whatever way she can. I truly admire Marisa for the commitment she shows to all of the various activities and organizations she participates in. I know that Marisa will go far in her career and I look forward to seeing the exciting work she will do in the future.
