Hi everyone! My name is Marissa Baker and I am joining the team at HMA as an intern. I’m excited to share my thoughts with you through our weekly blog posts. To get to know me better, I thought it would be great to kick off #FunFactFriday by sharing some interesting facts about myself.
Growing up I enjoyed playing the viola and singing in Phoenix Girls Chorus, but as an adult I much prefer being in the audience. It is a safe bet that you will find me in the first row at any concert.
My sister is my best friend and we love going on action-filled adventures such as hiking, skiing and kayaking.
If leaving the Valley of the Sun for snowy winters in Nebraska while I was attending Creighton University wasn’t adventurous enough, I decided to jet off to Ireland for a semester to travel solo all throughout Europe.
I interned previously as marketing coordinator at Fontenelle Forest. Part of our mission was to recover and rehabilitate injured raptors which deepened my love for nature.
I was born on Leap Day! This means that my birthday only comes once every four years.
Thanks for getting to know me! I’m excited to learn and grow during this internship and am excited to see what the future holds for me at HMA.
