Featuring our 2017 Mompreneur Keynote Speaker
Marisa is an active Mom of four, who is busy from sun up to sun down but makes the most out of every moment. She is a family travel expert who writes and blogs for national and local publications such as Trekaroo.com, Huffington Post and The Today Show Parents Blog. You can also find her monthly on TV as the resident “Tampa Mama” on Great Day Tampa Bay on News Channel 10 in Tampa! While traveling through the country and the globe with kids in tow, this health enthusiast founded the blog Fit Kids Playground, where healthy and happy kids meet a common sense approach to parenting. Play and healthy eating is the main focus. Awarded the 2012 President’s Council Community Leadership Award from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition for her work in the Tampa Bay community and beyond with her blog, she’s happiest talking with community leaders about how to raise healthy happy kids, the importance of play and how we can teach our kids to make the world a better place, especially through travel. She travels Florida extensively with her family in tow, always on the search for adventure and inspired the world around us. Now that her 4 kids are all in school, she has transitioned to full time working Mom with the family brand GoGo squeeZ as their Partnership and Community Events Manager overseeing the brands partnership with the Walt Disney Corporation. When this Mama is not busy with work, you can find her on a permanent vacation with kids in Florida, volunteering as a Girl Scout Leader to raise strong girls, helping new Moms navigate the world of Adrenal Insufficiency (a medical condition that 3 of her 4 children have) and writing about it all on her personal blog, TampaMama.com. She enjoys talking with her Mom friends about life, the daily struggles we all face and Bad Moms is her favorite movie.
