She's not just an expert—she's the Founder and CEO of Grey Owl HR, recently voted Best HR Company in all of Denton County for 2023.

Marisa thrives as a trusted business leader, partner and consultant, passionate about employee relations, recruitment and retention, onboarding programs, compensation planning, learning and development, engagement, recognition, organizational culture, leadership, and compliance.

When not immersed in educating clients on proper documentation, handbook editing, compensation strategies, investigations, or the labyrinth of employment laws, you'll find Marisa on the sidelines cheering on her son's football, and lacrosse teams, running the dugout and the walk-up songs at her daughter's softball games, trying to figure out how to speak "teenager", or questing for her next round of caffeine.
