Welcome from Marissa

Welcome from Marissa

Hello! I’m Marissa and I’m obsessed with social media. I’m sure most people would consider this a problem, but I’ve found it to be such a positive thing in my life; I truly love its power to connect people and create long lasting relationships with those of common interests.

I’m so excited to join the LFC team as the Social Media and Marketing Manager, and with that, bringing women together to enjoy good conversation. I’ve always been one to think outside the box, challenge the norm, and stand up for what I believe in. I’ve also been the girl who has hated her job and dreamt of a community like La Femme Collective where I could be reminded of these loves when I needed it.

I’ve been lucky enough to find my passion in the digital space but this definitely wasn’t a short or easy road. I graduated college and started out in a career I thought I loved - it was hard to accept when I came to realise it wasn't 'my thing'. I was 24 and I had already spent two years on this career path - all I could think was 'What am I going to do? Aren’t I too old to start over? I went to school for this, shouldn’t I want to do it for the rest of my life?'

The answer to all those questions is a big fat NO. You're never too old to start over, it’s okay for your interests to shift, and it’s important to know that you don’t have to do one thing for the rest of your life. Maybe my path will shift again later in life, who knows? I mean, who decided you should choose just one career to love for the rest of your life?

Enough about me - I can’t wait to hear from all of you! I am so stoked at the opportunity to encourage other women through conversation; talking about what’s important to them, standing up for what they believe in - and perhaps even helping some people find their true passion along the way.
