What Clients Are Saying
Non-Profit Program Director,
I loved that she pointed out how she modeled so much - taking responsibility, reading the room, giving examples from her own experiences, and a true appreciation for our work. I felt like each session built on elements of the other sessions and she was clear on how they were related. Her presentation was effective, clear, and concise.
Diversity, Equity, and Belonging Strategist and Speaker, California
Marissa has been a gift. She has a keen ability to summarize my ramblings and ask insightful and deep questions. My primary goal was to clarify my own values at a professional level and throughout this process, Marissa helped me realize that my personal values and my ability to trust myself are more important than any values I could espouse for my professional work. It's helped me feel a sense of ease and do some deep core work.
Head of School,
With clearly articulated facilitation design, Marissa graciously and confidently assessed our staff community. She then moved us through a process that both stimulated our curiosity and opened us up to new thoughts and horizons. Through this process, we reflected on past experiences and shifted towards an openness for what is to come.
