Marisa grabbed hold of the world of vines and wines from the field of corporate litigation. She earned her bachelor’s degree in history with a minor in anthropology from Haverford College, spending a year abroad at Oxford where she pursued a concentration in African studies. After obtaining her degree, she returned to her home city, the nation’s capital, where she entered the food industry, working at a boutique cookie shop. Marisa then continued her academic journey, receiving her Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School. She commenced her career as an attorney as an associate at the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell, LLP in New York City. There she spent four years further honing her analytical skills as she worked on complex commercial cases and regulatory investigations involving Wall Street banks. Always a mix of the cosmopolitan and nature-enjoyer, Marisa developed her taste for and interest in wine during an internship in South Africa, a summer on an organic farm in Hawaii, a bike trip through Napa and Sonoma, and wine classes in New York City. Marisa is excited to take the reigns of compliance here at T. Elenteny Imports, whose office is just two blocks from where some of her family members grew up!
