Pet Resource Team Leader at Austin Animal Center
Born and raised in the greatest city in the world Austin,TX. Marisa felt the urge to help her community and joined the staff at Austin Animal Center in 2007. The first 9 years of her sheltering career were spent adopting out animals to her fellow Austinites. In 2016 Marisa was promoted and became part of the leadership team in Customer Service. Recently, Marisa was asked to assist in the process of changing the intake department to a Pet Resource Center and help shift the focus from a transactional intake office to more of an actual resource for the community and its pets. Marisa leads the Pet Resource Team and is helping to keep pets in their homes and out of the shelter.
