My name is Marissa, and I am an outdoor enthusiast from Seattle with a passion for traveling. My bachelor’s degree is in Exercise Science, which was fitting since I’ve grown up playing sports and love being active. I went on to be a personal trainer and a Physical Therapist Assistant, which I still practice in sometimes when I’m home from traveling.
After working in such physical jobs and being in the office for up to 10 hours at a time, I needed a break. I started traveling more and became addicted. I love discovering the unknown, learning how other cultures are, and testing my language skills in foreign countries.
Finding new ways to stay active in each country visited is a goal I always have, whether it’s scuba diving in the Dominican Republic or hiking in Patagonia. I hope to go to all seven continents in the future. When I’m not traveling, I can be found exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest I call home. I look forward to sharing my travels with you, whether they’re near or far!
When I’m not outdoors or traveling, I spend my time as a freelance writer, photographer, and social media marketer. To see a list of my published work, click here.
