Hello, I am Marissa. I have been working here at force for about 2.5 years. I am originally from Evansville, In. I attended IU for Undergrad and have lived in Bloomington ever since. I love to stay busy so I constantly have something going between two jobs and activities with friends and family. In my spare time I love a good binge on Netflix/Hulu, cooking, drinking wine, a good workout and my self care Sundays. I love force because force is family, it's where everyone comes to be better/do better and if nothing else, they come to try!
