She made her journey up to Hampton Roads from Wilmington, NC where she worked as the lead reporter for WWAY’s 11 p.m. newscast. Marissa would frequently fill-in anchor for Good Morning Carolina and WWAY’s Sunday evening newscast.

Marissa was born and raised in the Lone Star State and graduated from Texas A&M in 2010 with a B.A. in Communication.
