Born & raised in South Texas, Marissa has been teaching high school speech & debate in the Houston area since 2015, specializing in individual events and Congressional Debate. She has coached a 2-time Congressional Debate State Champion (Texas), as well as an NSDA Congressional Debate National Finalist. Her students have gone on to attend prestigious public universities throughout Texas, as well as Ivy League universities throughout the country. Her love for her students and for debate stems from her own experience as an IE competitor at Harlingen South HS in Harlingen, TX, where she served as captain during her senior year. In her free time, she loves to write, travel, and find new trails with her dog, Kira (who she wishes she could bring to camp!). Marissa is very excited to be returning to the Capitol Debate staff, and is looking forward to a great summer getting to meet her new campers!
