Meet the E-Board

Marisa Johnson, President

Hi y’all! My name is Marisa Johnson and I am a senior studying psychology with a minor in HDFS. I change my mind a lot on what I’d like to do, but right now I’m interested in HR. In my free time, I like to watch YouTube videos and play video games like Valorant. I’m obsessed with coffee: I love Chamberlain and Perkatory in West Hartford. Taylor Swift is my favorite artist and I’d love to see her in concert one day!
