Marissa Speer

 

Marissa joined the Lifecycle team in 2020. She became a nurse to expand her “knowledge in the healing arts and to help advocate for patients as they navigate the healthcare system.”

Before attending nursing school Marissa earned her BA in Environmental Studies with a minor in Holistic Health. She also completed her certification in clinical herbalism, worked in a community herbal clinic, and started a line of herbal medicine.

At Lifecycle, Marissa enjoys having the ability to hold space for and support our clients “during vulnerable moments with a team of colleagues who share a holistic vision of care”. She says that it is a privilege to share those first precious moments with families and newborns and getting to know our clients during postpartum home visits.

Outside of work, Marissa enjoys exploring nature. Recently, she has taken up bird and animal watching. She loves photography and began photographing birds and animals through her binoculars. She also loves when clients ask for photos in the birthing suites – “what an honor to be a labor and delivery nurse and occasionally, a birth photographer!”
