She draws from her broad experience in advertising and strategic communications to develop impactful strategies, inspire best-in-class creative work and lead successful campaigns. Operating by the principles of honesty, transparency and accountability have earned Marissa the respect and loyalty of clients at some of the world’s most recognizable companies. Prior to joining Purple, Marissa spent a decade at History Factory shaping heritage-inspired brand storytelling campaigns for leading global brands and building an account management discipline from the ground up. She is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor of Journalism (Advertising) and a concentration in Spanish.  

“The whole of Purple is far greater than the sum of its parts, and because of that we can bring the absolute best of our varied experience and expertise to bear for our clients.” 

“When we’re partnering with clients on high-stakes, high-visibility work, there has to be a mutual foundation of trust and confidence to accomplish what we’ve set out to do. My goal every day is to strengthen our relationships and bring our expert thinking to the forefront so our clients know they can rely on Purple to deliver time and time again.” 

“Having external outlets are critical to bringing a clear head and fresh perspective to your work. For me, travel helps keep the world (and my problems) in perspective, and painting stretches the creative muscles that I don’t always get to exercise on the job.”
