Marisa is the newest member of Noah's Ark Animal Hospital - we are so excited add her talents to our team! She was born and raised in South Dakota and grew up in the country on the Rosebud Reservation. Animals have always been a big part of her life as her family raised dogs, cats, horses, pigs, chickens, goats, geese, rabbits, guinea pigs, a donkey, turtles, ducks, fish and a cow with no ears named "No Ears".
Marisa graduated from Sinte Gleska University with an Associate degree in Arts and Sciences. One of her passions is combating violence towards women and children and she has spent the last few years as an advocate with both WAVI and White Buffalo Calf Women Society.
In her free time Marisa enjoys writing, reading, video games, crafts and creating art. She has two cat babies - a "feisty grandma" named Arya and a "gentle soul" named Aisha.
