Marissa Angell
Marissa was raised in rural upstate New York where hiking in the region, particularly in the glacially formed gorges of Ithaca, contributed to her deep-rooted interest in plants and landscape.

She has contributed her skills, particularly her knowledge of planting and ecology, to a diverse range of MVVA projects. Marissa's most recent work includes coordinating various aspects of the planting plan for A Gathering Place for Tulsa, developing a planting design for the Waller Creek Chain of Parks in Austin, TX, and the conceptual design for historic Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY. She was also part of the MVVA team for Princeton University's 2026 Landscape Master Plan.

Marissa received a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Sciences from Cornell University, with a focus on soil science and sustainability. She went on to earn a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard's Graduate School of Design where she worked as a teaching assistant, research assistant, and instructor for the Career Discovery Program. Prior to working at MVVA, she was employed at the landscape architecture firm Richard Burck Associates and interned at OFICINAA, a landscape architecture firm in Ingolstadt, Germany.

Marissa joined MVVA in 2015.
