Marissa joined WSE in the fall of 2015 as an intern while she was completing her Bachelor’s degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering with a focus in hydrology and hydrodynamics at the University of Washington. After completing her degree, she continued at WSE as a Junior Engineer. Marissa has gained experience with hydraulic and hydrologic numerical model development, GIS mapping and analysis, and field data collection. She has enjoyed learning how to effectively communicate technical findings to clients and stakeholders.
Outside of the office, Marissa spends as much time as she can outside. She enjoys backpacking, traveling, and forcing her hiking companions to listen to “fun facts” about Pacific Northwest rivers.
