Marisa Savic is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She started her healthcare career by volunteering and then running Columbia University's Substance Treatment and Research Service. She fell in love with providing psychiatric care which led her to enroll at University of Pennsylvania's Nursing School for a dual Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Nursing degree. She believes it is extremely important to provide nonjudgmental, respectful care to clients and prioritize their wants and needs in order to create a strong therapeutic relationship and succeed in meeting their goals. In her free time, she enjoys playing with her cat Rami, painting portraits of her friends and watching reality tv shows.
What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor, and more unashamed conversation. – Glenn Close
