Marissa Golison

"Growing up in southern California taught me early on the importance of ocean conservation. Seeing how polluted the waterways became and the loss of biodiversity was forefront in my education and career decisions. My love for the ocean is why I currently work in sustainability in the Consumer Packaged Good Industry, helping to clean up the mess of plastic pollution."

Marissa grew up sailing dinghies in Long Beach, California. She continued sailing competitively at St. Mary’s College of Maryland then moved to Annapolis and coached at various junior programs. Marissa now sails mostly snipes and uses kiteboarding to get on the water.
