Marissa is a fifth-year graduate student completing her doctoral internship with Fairfax County Public Schools. She completed a B.S. in Psychology and B.A. in Journalism at the University of Maryland (Go Terps!) before beginning the school psychology program at the University of South Carolina in 2012. Her research and career interests focus on serving families and children, particularly those with social, emotional, and academic concerns, through enjoyable and effective in-school and out-of-school programs. She is also very interested in how faith-based organizations can use evidence-based practices to help meet families' needs. Marissa loves summer camp and after-school activities, as well as a good book (typically from the children’s or teens’ section of the library).
