Marisa SaliceHRWC adds to the outreach team

Marisa Salice joined HRWC in April as a Marketing and Outreach Associate. Marisa is primarily responsible for the planning and implementation of environmental education and outreach programming for projects across the organization. For the next two years, she will support the public education programs for the stormwater groups including the Alliance of Downriver Watersheds (ADW), the Middle Huron Partners, and the Livingston Watershed Advisory Group.

Starting a new job during a pandemic is no small feat, but Marisa has shown herself ready for the challenge. She has already begun working on the ADW’s digital Welcome, Marisa! HRWC adds to the outreach team newsletter for community leaders and is wrangling production of the group’s 2022 Watershed Community Calendar, due out in October of this year.

Marisa holds a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and Political Science with a minor in Sustainability from Eastern Michigan University, and is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications at EMU. As an undergrad, Marisa worked in the Office of Admissions as Guest Relations Coordinator, helping to develop the school’s transition to virtual prospective student engagement. She was also a field manager at EMU’s Center for Digital Engagement and Ann Arbor SPARK, producing live social media content while leading marketing and promotion efforts.

Marisa grew up in Commerce Township and has lived near the Huron River her entire life. HRWC is glad to have her on board!
