Director of Client Services
Since 2012, Marissa has provided extensive client services to dovetail solutions, calling upon her professional and educational background in the areas of public relations, social media, community engagement, strategic communications and reporting. She has experience working with clients in a breadth of industries including real estate, architecture, construction, law, financial services and higher education, among others. In her role as director of client services, Marissa is responsible for big-picture strategic planning, as well as the day-to-day management and oversight of all client accounts, providing support to the full client services team. A native of Colorado, Marissa works remotely for dovetail solutions, making frequent trips back to Denver to serve client needs. Because her husband is a pilot, she has experienced life in many places across the country but has found no community she loves more than Denver. Leveraging today’s technological offerings, Marissa is able to remain anchored to the Denver landscape as she manages client accounts. Beginning with dovetail solutions as an intern, she benefited tremendously from the firm’s teaching internship program while continuing to support the dovetail solutions team from a variety of roles and perspectives during the past five years. A graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder, Marissa earned degrees in news/editorial journalism and Spanish, as well as an international media certificate. Outside of the office, Marissa spends her time with her husband, daughter and two dogs and also enjoys traveling, reading and fitness.
