About the author:
Marissa Klein knows a little something about dreaming big. After building her career in beauty and fashion sales in NYC, she finally embraced her inner entrepreneur, left the corporate world behind, and started a successful handmade and custom gift company, rissylyn. Throughout her travels, Marissa was always the "matchmaker" - constantly connecting people, helping people, talking to people, changing people. So while promoting her namesake brand at one of the many trunk shows at Henri Bendel, she had an epiphany. Why not bring these skills together and help others dream the way she always had? For the past 8 years, she has has managed Choice Fashion/Media, the creative division of her family's boutique staffing firm. Everyday she helps people find their dream jobs. She believes that while inherently we may have more "grown-up" realities, at the end of the day, we all just want to be able to do what we love and be genuinely happy doing it. Marissa is originally from Harrington Park, NJ and graduated from of the University of Richmond with a degree in business. She currently resides in Hoboken, NJ with her husband, David, her two beautiful dreamers, Sienna and Summer, and her poodle, Simba.
