Marisa strives to ensure that her patients and their families feel as comfortable and safe as possible while working with her. She understands that being sick or injured can be a scary time for kids as well as their parents and believes that honesty and transparency are vital to a good working relationship. She also believes that providing clear information, discussing care plans and options openly, and respecting patient and family preferences leads to the best outcomes, which is her goal for each patient.
Marisa lives in Liberty Lake with her husband and two goldendoodles. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, weekends at the lake, hiking with her dogs, reading, and going out to eat.
