Member at Large

Merissa was born in Montreal, Quebec and moved to Tacoma in 2016 after a 12 year stay in the San Francisco Bay Area. Having lived in many different cities, Tacoma is certainly a place she is proud to call home. One of her first stops upon moving to Tacoma was the Rainbow Center to find community and start volunteering. The offer to join the Rainbow Center Board was an easy one as this is such an essential organization serving our amazing community! 

For over 15 years, Merissa has managed the sales operations of several organizations -- currently with Delta Dental of Washington. When not working and volunteering, you can find Merissa hiking with her family and German Pointer, cooking, entertaining, or reading.
