I really appreciate Otak’s commitment to positive change in our environment and communities.
Marissa has always been an observer of life and others. Since she was young, she has had a knack for drawing and understanding what people like. It did not take long before she realized she could solve creative problems using those skills. She was fortunate to go to an arts-focused high school, which led to a successful string of awards and recognition, forging the beginnings of her future career path. With the guidance of her instructors, she curated a portfolio that earned several significant scholarships, and now Otak and Otak clients benefit from Marissa’s creativity, ideation, and adaptability. With so much variation in needs and tastes among clients, Marissa stays on her toes, rolling with the ebb and flow of each project. She enjoys the incredible array of interesting projects at Otak, especially work for the National Park Service. She also appreciates the immense support, talent, and brilliance of her colleagues. Marissa coordinates her office’s United Way campaign.
