Marissa Nuckles is according to her Facebook page “one feisty woman” with a passion for the Jewish people. This Santa Barbara native joined the Jewlicious team a few months ago and quickly rose from intern to full-fledged organizer.

Marissa’s duties include supervising a nationwide network of Jewlicious Campus organizers on two dozen campuses, recruiting new organizers and coaching our current team. On any given day Marissa might be in touch with campuses in California, Maryland and Arizona.

Marissa is also spearheading the creation of a new Online Campus Organizer Manual for the network. “We are taking this manual we have, making an online one that can grow with our network, and be added to by our team members. It’s pretty amazing,” added Marissa.

“Marissa is about the most positive and friendly person I think I have met,” said one a new campus organizer at a west coast campus. “She tackles everything with passion, and can-do spirit.”

But don’t confuse her positive and chill attitude with complacency.

Marissa sees the situation on college campuses where most Jewish students don’t get involved with Jewish groups as a major area that needs repair. She cares deeply about making sure that students have access to great programs and people.

Even when she is not at work, Marissa organizes massive Shabbat Dinners sometimes with Birthright Next funding and sometimes not.

Bringing young Jewish people together is what makes Marissa happy, and why Jewlicious is honored and thrilled to have her on the team.

If you want to be in touch with Marissa you can find her on Facebook, call her at the office, or send her an email to marissa dot jewlicious at gmail dot com.
