Hi! I'm Marissa.

my work


mAd Skills.

Every job — good or bad — makes us who we are. I've had a lot of jobs since I manned a cash register in high school, and each one taught me something that I use every day.

Over-deliver. Live and die by deadlines. Expect the unexpected. If your mother says she loves you, check it out. Simplify. Don't avoid hard conversations (or expense reports). Don't underestimate people, or situations, and their capacity to challenge you.

And, above all, never underestimate yourself.  

WHAT I DO

Born in Florida and higher-learned in the District of Columbia, I've worked as a reporter, communications director, social media manager, digital strategist and amateur photog since 2007.

let's work together.

Whether you need help with copywriting, ghostwriting, content development, event support, or strategy blueprints for a campaign, I can definitely help you with that.

My ride

My ride


I traded my car for a bike in 2008. 

Since then, I've cycled tens of thousands of miles — including two trips across the entire state of Iowa, blasting Rihanna and Daft Punk from my bicycle speakers the whole way.  

It was hard to stop: I was saving money, feeling healthier, gaining more confidence and independence, and making a lot of new friends (including the guy I eventually married). I like finding new ways to share my love of riding a bike with other people.

Take a class with me!

When I'm not plotting my next road ride, I'm teaching indoor cycling classes at Biker Barre on Capitol Hill. My classes are all about finding a stronger, more badass version of yourself. Find me on the schedule at bikerbarre.com and come say hi.

Support WABA.

Riding a bike changed my life. That's why I volunteer as a Roll Model with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association's Women & Bicycles program, an initiative to encourage more women to use bicycles for transportation.
