With 14 years of nursing experience, Marisa enjoys caring for patients at GMA because she feels like she is making a difference in a unique way and is able to give a little “TLC” on a person’s journey to wellness. “Sometimes people come in who have been through a lot physically and emotionally with an illness. They feel sick and sometimes apprehensive. I try to provide a place in our IV room where they can take a deep breath, listen to some pleasant music, and find a little hope. Often, our IV room is a place where patients support and connect with each other. It’s wonderful to see.”
Marisa and her husband and family have lived in Sonoma County for 9 years. She likes hiking, mountain biking in Annadel State Park, cooking, and getting lost in a good book.
