As a non-profit community organization, INFORUM benefits from the incredible work and effort of many amazing people in the Inforum community and the Commonwealth Club of California – including staff, volunteers, board members, donors, speakers, partners, attendees, and members.
They help us bring inspired conversations to the Bay Area.
Marisa joined INFORUM as Director in December 2015. She brings big goals, a bigger laugh, and a penchant for matchmaking people and ideas to the INFORUM team--friends and strangers alike know her as a connector. She’s excited to push the envelope with thought-provoking events on the INFORUM stage and to continue building the incredible INFORUM community. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh, educated and frozen in Boston at Northeastern University, and may never leave the Bay Area’s perfect running (and eating and drinking) climate.
