Today’s #FolkFamily introduction is our newest full-time team member, Marisa Kolka! Marisa was our intern last summer and during #FAI2017... this relationship was always meant to be. Since graduating this spring from @ucentralmo she joined #FAI as Development & Communications Coordinator. Marisa is a woman of many talents and interests. In addition to a passion for social media and the Spanish language, she is a closet knitter, an avid hip-hop scholar, and has very strong opinions regarding the purity of @chipotlemexicangrill’s menu options. We are absolutely thrilled to call Marisa #FolkFamily! #NoQueso
