Thanks to an innocent hobby of playing dress-up and posing on her parents’ coffee table, Marisa has ventured into more professional and mature modeling markets. Part Argentine/part Italian, the Toronto native’s exotic mix and soft curves won her the title of Miss Bikini Canada 2008 and Importfest 2008 Featured Model. Marisa has been featured in promos for mainstream names like Budweiser, Superbowl, and Harley Davidson. Marisa’s gracing of publications is included but not limited to a Nike print ad, several wall calendars and several issues of American Curves Magazine (such as a 10 page pictorial in their December 2008 issue). Marisa has shot with high-profile glamour photographers, like (Playboy’s Toronto representative) Paul Buceta, Eikona, and Ward LaForme. Her more recent works include the Eikona 2010 Bedroom Girls Calendar and several radio and TV appearances as a spokesperson, actress and promotional model.

However, Marisa’s extensive resume of ambitions isn’t just restricted to modelling. Being an avid practitioner of yoga and a passion for health and wellness, Marisa is now a certified Yoga Instructor. Understanding the benefits of yoga and possessing a natural sense of altruism, she wants to help others connect with their well being and spiritual growth.

Marisa plans to educate others with her own holistic healing and yoga workshops. She also loves to volunteer and perform charity work wherever possible. Marisa’s interests include travelling,music and spending time with her Yorkie puppy.
