Marissa Nahanee
Event Planning

The eyes of the entire world were on Marissa Nahanee’s work in 2010. After graduating from our Event Management program, Marissa got a chance to showcase her skill while working on the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

She actually found herself turning down jobs after graduation, while she furthered her education at the Native Education College, with hopes of opening her own business to specialize in “aboriginal infused” events.
