Marissa grew up in North Carolina and is a 2014 graduate of the College of Charleston. She came to know Christ through Campus Outreach while attending the College of Charleston. God used women involved with CO to invest time into her life and to help her realize—for the first time—that she is a sinner in need of a Savior. This allowed her to see that she could have a personal relationship with God through Jesus. God gave her a desire to come on staff with the same ministry that impacted her life spiritually. Experiences in Marissa's life have enabled her to minister to many girls at the College of Charleston, giving her the joy to see their hearts changed by the Good News of the gospel!
