Starting her career on the stage, Marisa graduated from the National Theatre Drama School in 1996 and has since worked on a countless number of productions for top theatre companies, including Melbourne Theatre Company, La Mama and the Australian Shakespeare Company. She also studied under Cecily Berry at the Royal Shakespeare Company UK.
Marisa has appeared in TVCs for some of Australia’s most recognisable brands, including Kmart and NAB, and is a sought-after Melbourne voice artist.
