Makes learning fun with actionable advice

“Marissa presents content in a digestible and cohesive manner. She uses catchy phrases worth remembering!” - Anita

Makes everyone feel welcome and valued

“When I watch Marissa teach, I am always struck with her ability to make the presentation conversational. She makes everyone feel welcome and valued. This is so rare, and she does it beautifully. Marissa models how to interact with another person (or animal) by looking through their lens and always getting curious regarding how to support them. I've seen this in her presentations and in her everyday life. She has a natural tendency to help people and animals and this shines through in her presentations. Her unique approach will no doubt shift people viewing their dog's behavior as a "problem" to “how can I support my dog that is struggling?”  - Kate
