Marisa is a family medicine board certified physician who has been in practice for 11 years. She graduated cum laude with a BA in Science from Baylor University in Waco, TX. She then attended two years at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and then transferred to the University of Kansas Medical Center Wichita Branch when her husband was accepted into the Via Christi Family Medicine program in Wichita, Kansas. After graduating medical school, she also attended the Via Christi Family Medicine Program. She has 4 children and if she has free time, she enjoys horseback riding, reading and family time – travelling and being silly with her children and husband. She moved her family, plus mom, dad, 2 brothers, 3 dogs and a parrot to a 300 year old grain mill in Germany to explore a less hectic life and is happy to be serving this community through her work at American Medical Center.
