Communications Manager Marisa Serrano is an avid writer and editor with hands-on experience in education.
Prior to joining Larson Communications, Marisa worked in the administrative offices of the Wellesley Public School system, and gained a deep understanding of the ways in which district resources and administrative decisions affect students' lives. She also served as a mentor for an elementary school student in Oakland, Maine through her Alma Mater’s program Colby Cares About Kids.
In her three years of work as a peer tutor at the Farnham Writers’ Center at Colby College, Marisa assisted students as they learned how to best present their argument and communicate their ideas. She has a knack for editing, and knows how to help others identify their true message and convey it effectively.
Most recently, Marisa participated in an immersive training program called Koru, where she worked on a project for Facebook. Using competitor analysis, customer discovery, and data analytics, her team designed a proactive solution to improve Facebook’s user experience.
Marisa received her bachelor’s degree from Colby College – earning distinction in the English major, and minoring in both philosophy and creative writing. She loves spending time outdoors, especially skiing, biking, and hiking.
