Born and raised in Coxheath, Marissa has just completed her Bachelor of science degree, majoring in biology. Marissa knew that her future involved working with animals, so she started out by volunteering with our Celtic Creatures team, and was then hired in 2013.

While Marissa has a huge love for animals, she has a soft spot for dogs, especially Cavalier’s, and will make sure to greet every dog with love and affection once entering the building.

She enjoys any opportunity to work hands on with our patients and learning everything she can to enhance their health. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, horseback riding, going to the gym, and can usually be found in the dog park or out adventuring with her two adopted dogs, Tucker and Taylor Swift. A rescue kitten named Simon has also recently joined her family, although he is quickly learning to be one of the dogs.
