"In an increasingly virtual world, events are one
of the few opportunities we have to truly connect
face-to-face." - Marisa

As owner and chief planner of The Event Ninjas, an event planning and design agency, Marisa is deeply passionate about the power events have to move and connect people. She brings over 15 years of experience in project management, strategic communications and branding to each event to find unique solutions for every client. She also has a talent for re-imagining unconventional event spaces from a warehouse in Williamsburg for a wedding, to a beach on Governors' Island for an industry event.

Marisa's work is often described as having ninja-like precision, disciplined focus and grace under pressure. Her career began at Time Inc. where she worked in production, public relations and communications at Time Warner, Time and Parenting magazines. In this environment, she learned to marry creativity and administration working on press events and magazine shoots while managing back-office systems, procurement and production. She went on to manage marketing communications and events for New York City's Department of Small Business Services and UnitedHealthcare. Her experience honed Marisa's skills in understanding how design, strategy and planning connect to produce a flawless event.

As The Event Ninjas grows, Marisa and her team are committed to supporting local organizations that empower young women and encourage entrepreneurship. This past year the team produced an event and documentary commemorating the Girls Scouts of West Harlem's history and hosted a seminar in goal planning for local entrepreneurs. Giving back is a major tenet of our business.

Marisa is a proud alumna of LaGuardia's High School of Music and Art's art program. She earned a Bachelors degree in communications and media studies from Fordham University and a Masters degree in strategic communications from Columbia University. In her spare time she serves as a chapter disaster responder for the Red Cross and enjoys planning on solo adventures as well as traveling with family.
