Ph.D. credentialed expertise but supremely down to earth and relatable, with a broad reach across topics and fields, from Leadership Effectiveness to Hope and Happiness, from Diversity and Teamwork (Why Can’t we JUST GET ALONG?!) to 8 Ways to Happiness from Wherever You Are, from Branding and Marketing to Self-Development (Be the Best that You can Be and Broadcast it!) and for special groups including Women, People of Color and Entrepreneurs (Calling the BS Belief Systems that Help and Hurt the Entrepreneur/Leader/Women/PoC in Business). Thanks to her decades of experiential experience with public, private, government and international organizations, Dr. Marissa also has the ability to tailor any talk/program to ensure that the takeaways are relevant and translatable from theory/concepts to positive changes in the individual and organization.
She is known as the ‘Asian Oprah’, and Dr. Marissa was actually introduced to Oprah as such by Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith who gave her the nickname. She believes it’s all about balance… peace in and peace out…world peace through inner peace!
