Hunter Education Coordinator
Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
Marisa was born in Ohio, moved to south Florida when she was 15 and to Alabama when she was 20 where she still resides today. As such she is very confused about her heritage and often hears the words, "You ain't from around here are ya?" or, from her relatives that still live in Ohio, "Girl, you sound like Tanya Tucker!" Raised in an anti-gun family she ignited much controversy when she started hunting and participating in shotgun competitions in her late 20's.Currently she serves as the Hunter Education Coordinator for the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources where she has been employed since 2005. In her position she oversees shooting ranges, archery ranges, the National Archery in the Schools Program, all shooting sports programs and the Becoming an Outdoors Woman Program.
