Carissa was born and raised in Puyallup Washington and is currently pursuing a BA in Psychology at the University of Washington Tacoma.
"From a young age, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career where I could utilize my love for helping children reach their full potential. It wasn’t until I started college that I realized my passion stretched beyond childcare and church nursery. Volunteering at Good Samaritan Hospital, being able to help with events at the Children’s Therapy Unit, I saw the impact that ABA therapy had on the children and knew this was something that I wanted to be a part of."
In Carissa's spare time she loves baking cupcakes, spending time with her family, and singing.
