With a degree in Journalism and Media Studies under her belt, Laurissa graduated from San Diego State University and began her marketing career at Oster and Associates where she focused on account coordinating, new business development and event marketing. Motivated by her strong passion for event marketing and planning, Laurissa moved to IMGN Agency in 2016. She was originally hired as an event coordinator for Craig Sewing’s Annual Mastery Event, held at the San Diego Convention Center. But thanks to her hard work ethic, Laurissa managed to grow the audience base three times over via grassroots and digital marketing. Naturally, Ignite Now Media offered her a full-time position. As the company’s Associate Producer, Laurissa has worn many hats including serving as the associate producer for Lifestyles San Diego, the floor director for more than six TV shows, and the marketing associate for the national launch of the studio’s flagship show, The American Dream. In her spare time, Laurissa loves the game of soccer and enjoys coaching young girls at both at the high school and club levels. She also loves to hang out with her adorable huskie puppy, Skyler.
