Carissa graduated from the State University of New York at Fredonia with a degree in Public Relations/Communications and a minor in Public Health. After graduating in 2016, she worked as a pharmacy technician until her passion for writing led her to a digital marketing specialist role where she spearheaded content marketing campaigns for various Fortune 1000 brands.
Originally a Syracuse, NY native, Carissa escaped the cold and snowy winters to settle down in Nashville, TN. She began her journey with THIRDHOME as a content editor, creating property exposures and producing engaging content to showcase THIRDHOME’s diverse portfolio. In May 2022, Carissa joined the marketing department as Marketing Manager to oversee marketing campaigns, manage content, design creative, support PR initiatives, and promote THIRDHOME across multiple platforms.
She has been fortunate enough to cruise the Western Caribbean (Costa Maya, Cozumel, Honduras, and Belize), the Bahamas, and several states within the U.S., including an extraordinary trip to Alaska. She hopes to cross more destinations off her bucket list, like Europe and the Eastern Caribbean, sometime in the future.
