IF YOU LOOKED BACK ON MY LIFE, YOU’D FIND 12-YEAR-OLD ME LINING THE WALLS OF MY BEDROOM WITH MAGAZINE PAGES, INSPIRED BY BOTH THE EDITORIAL DESIGN & INCREDIBLE CREATIVITY OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY. I GREW UP WATCHING KELL ON EARTH, THE RACHEL ZOE PROJECT, PROJECT RUNWAY, & MORE, COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS UNTIL I COULD GET A 'REAL FASHION JOB' IN NEW YORK.
I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO START WORKING IN THAT INDUSTRY AT THE AGE OF 15. from there, i was able to experience SO MANY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES & JOBS WITHIN THE INDUSTRY. BUT IN 2014, I found myself sitting at a desk, at my dream job at one of the biggest fashion magazine publishers in new york, and i felt completely unfulfilled. I wasn't serving anyone, i wasn't helping anyone & i wanted my career to have so much more meaning.
TODAY I SPLIT MY TIME BETWEEN ON-SITE PROJECTS, & SITTING IN MY DINING ROOM TURNED OFFICE, GLANCING UP TO FIND THOSE SAME MAGAZINE PAGES FRAMED IN THE PLACE I GET TO WORK MY DREAM JOB EVERY DAY - SERVING ENTREPRENEURS WHO EMBODY THEIR PURPOSE IN THEIR LIFE & BRAND.
from 2010 - 2016: i had the pleasure of working in pr & marketing at launchmetrics, starworks group, hearst publications, & nineteenth amendment.

“THE ONBOARDING WAS EXQUISITE, THE IN-DEPTH UNDERSTANDING OF MY TARGET CUSTOMER WAS EXCEPTIONAL, THE TIMELY TURNAROUND WAS INCREDIBLE, AND THE QUALITY OF WORK WAS JUST OUTSTANDING! I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY DECISION TO WORK WITH RISE.”
Emma Golden / EMMASTHING
"MAKING THE DECISION TO INVEST IN MY OWN WEBSITE AND SPEND THE MONEY TO WORK WITH A TRUE PROFESSIONAL WHO HELPED ME REALIZE MY VISION WAS BY FAR THE SMARTEST THING I BOUGHT THIS YEAR. IF YOU HAVE A WEBSITE OR A BRAND THAT YOU’RE LOOKING TO CREATE, REDESIGN, REIMAGINE, ETC., RISE CREATIVE IS IT."
Michelle Urso / OMI
"I AM OBSESSED. I literally have no words, this is so freakin beautiful and perfect!! You captured everything I was dreaming of and more. "

I cannot recommend Rise enough. I had lots of ideas but no clear direction on where to take my business. Marisa picked up on my vision so quickly, and just ran with it. Every time I got an email from her I was blown away and stumped for feedback because it was always so perfect. And now I have a clear business direction and strategy that feels like ME and has me so excited to relaunch!

"I did a two day design intensive with Marisa and was so pleased with the quality of work and turnaround time for our project!! I was eager to get my podcast website up and running, and she made it happen. I absolutely love the branding/logos she created for my podcast and podcast website, and think she really understood what I was going for!"
