Marisa L. Sanchez serves as the Government Affairs Manager at Ferox Strategies where she supports Ferox’s clients and executives through research and analysis, as well as co-managing our marketing and various social media platforms.
Marisa, who holds a summa cum laude bachelor’s degree in International Studies with a concentration in Global Markets and Governance from the University of New Mexico, focused her research in trade, labor, and international economics. In addition, she has a diverse background in research and media management that she gained throughout her time in her district Congressional office and Capitol Hill.
Marisa worked in Congresswoman Deb Haaland’s (D-NM) Albuquerque office where she was Staff Assistant and Intern Coordinator. She led multiple congressional projects while also delegating and addressing constituent concerns in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Marisa gained significant experience in her district while being exposed to issue areas including immigration, labor, diversity, and local economics.
Shortly after working heavily in constituent services and federal resources, Marisa participated in the Fall 2020 Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute’s (CHLI) Global Leaders Program, a competitive semester-long program featuring placement in a Congressional and private office. She was the second fellow to ever be selected from New Mexico. As part of CHLI, Marisa was placed with Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL), where she was the first fully remote fellow to work full time completing daily COVID-19 reports, monthly economic reports, and various projects related to education, voting records, and grants.
In her free time, Marisa enjoys participating in the Washington, D.C. League of United Latin American Citizens council, printmaking and handwriting letters, attending movie nights with friends, and riding her bike.
