Marissa (also known as “Riss”) lives and works in Washington, D.C. She is a recent graduate in political science from a private university in California. A native of D.C., she is never bored by our nation’s capital. Her goals every year are to read more books, explore new hikes, visit different cities, and write more handwritten notes to family and friends. She is also an avid sports fan and member of her neighborhood church. Also, if you ever have any good ideas for where to pitch a hammock, let her know.
While enrolled in an environmental policy course at her college, Marissa became very interested in how to live a more sustainable life. Being an East Coaster in the California drought, she realized how conscientious Californians must be of their natural resources, such as water; something that other Americans take for granted. She was motivated to learn more about the environment, and created this blog to share her journey of finding “sustainable living for the high-maintenance millennial.”
Now, wanting to take on a new challenge, Marissa has expanded her blog from living a green life to also living a good life. Think of it as a “yuppie’s guide to a wholesome and wholehearted life.” From reading recommendations to recipes (even she can do!), to interviews with those who inspire, this blog is Marissa’s way of exploring a fulfilling life and a responsible (I mean, Rissponsible) life. She doesn’t have the recipe to a good life, but she hopes the ingredients of Rissponsible Living are something worth trying.
