UBC Vancouver
She, her, hers


Marisa’s previous relevant work includes service as an Equity Ambassador, executive of UBC Women in Science, content creator for The Black Sportswoman publication, and volunteer for the BC Chapter of UWC Canada Selections Committee, where she helped to introduce an equity-based evaluation process and mandate bias training. Marisa is passionate about making STEM a more inclusive and accessible space for equity-deserving groups on campus. Particular topics of interest include how we can dispel the myth of meritocracy, decrease the functional distance between students and the institution, and use visual media to share the stories of marginalized groups on campus. She is always willing and eager to discuss women’s sports.
