Rural Action has welcomed a new Huff Run and Mud Run watershed coordinator. Marissa Geib has been selected to replace Maureen Wise, who resigned in April after serving as coordinator for nine years.
Marissa has been involved with the Huff Run Watershed Restoration Partnership for five years, first as a community member and volunteer before being elected as secretary of the organization. Also, she was the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Mineral Resource Management summer water quality intern for three terms during summers 2009-2011. She worked out of the Huff Run office, and assisted with chemical water quality sampling, macroinvertibrate sampling, fundraising, community outreach, and other office duties.
She is a 2012 graduate of Malone University with a BA in Political Science and Biology. While attending Malone, Marissa was chosen to participate in an off-campus, semester-long program based in Washington, D.C. While attending classes there, she also secured an internship with the United States Department of Agriculture, where she worked doing outreach with rural non-profits and community organizations.
A lifelong Sandy Valley resident, Marissa will become a Huff Run watershed resident when she marries her fiancé Nick and moves into Sandy Township, just outside of Mineral City. She is excited to continue working with Huff Run, and expand on her previous experience with Mud Run.
