Marisa Sullivan is a journalist and actress living in Los Angeles and is originally from Chicago. She studied writing and theatre at the University of Iowa. Marisa was a senior staffer at Us Weekly magazine and is currently a freelance writer/reporter. She has interviewed nearly every celebrity you can think of at countless red carpets including the Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammys and Emmys for over a decade.

Marisa is currently nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Play at the Valley Theatre Awards and her most recent film, "I'll Be Around," just won Best Independent Film at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival in L.A.

After a 2019 breast cancer diagnosis, Marisa has been leaning more toward the health space and has recently been penning articles about her experience going through cancer and COVID-19 for the Global Healthy Living Foundation -- a non-profit with the mission to improve the quality of life for people with chronic illness.

Marisa is rekindling her first love with poetry and creative writing and is starting her first book in the fall.
