Marisa has a background working with adolescents and adults with neurologic injuries including stroke, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. Her passion is helping people to return to those big life pursuits and independence including returning to work, school, and driving. She enjoys teaching people how they can participate despite new challenges from their condition.
In her spare time, Marisa enjoys hiking and backpacking, exploring new restaurants (especially for brunch, of course), exposing her friends to adaptive sports, volunteering and training with Junior League, and wandering around Powell’s looking for classics to check off her “must read” list.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher.
