This is Marissa Cornelius. Marissa is working on finishing her master’s degree in Social Work and is scheduled to graduate in the summer of 2023 from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Marissa earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Gerontology from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2017.
Marissa has had the opportunity to complete three practicums within her undergraduate degree, including at Mt. Carmel Nursing Home, The Autism Spectrum Center, and Richard Young Psychiatric Hospital. Marissa’s first graduate practicum was at Encourage Advocacy Center in the spring and summer semesters of 2021. Her professional employment experiences include working at a mental health clinic, being an initial assessment case worker with the Department of Health and Human Services, and working for a non-profit in Grand Island.
In Marissa’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, her six-year-old corgi named Castiel, and her friends. Marissa thrives in nature, and her favorite hobby is hiking in the mountains with her husband, Trevor. She loves to travel and has been to four countries, including Mexico, Jamaica, Europe, and Spain, and planning for Indonesia in the upcoming months. She spends a lot of time completing her graduate courses, doing homework, and planning for her future. She is excited to graduate next summer and find the opportunities that follow.
