Marissa Carney

Director of Corporate Development

What did you do before working at Make-A-Wish Georgia?

After graduating from Emory University, I worked in retail consulting for about 10 years. During this time I battled Stage IV brain cancer and quickly realized that I needed to make more of an impact with my life and career.

What's your favorite part of the job?

I have the best job in the world. Not only do I get to bond with our amazing wish families and connect with them on a similar level; but I also have the pleasure of partnering with our corporate community to align our missions to grant wishes. Nothing makes me happier than to see our mutual passions realized.

What would your wish be?

To meet, sing with and be best friends with Faith Hill.
