The Marine Corps has always been an important touchstone in Clarissa’s life – from living on numerous military bases to building a career supporting several Marine Corps program offices.
After graduating from George Mason University in 2007, Clarissa accepted her first position as a Program Analyst with the Joint Program Office Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (JPO MRAP) program. What started as a “placeholder” job quickly turned into a true interest in the acquisition process. After joining MLT in 2009, Clarissa continued her growth as an Analyst and went on to support Program Manager Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (PM CIED), Product Manager (PdM) Force Protection Systems (FPS), and the Director, Acquisition Logistics and Product Support (ALPS) before landing as MLT’s Finance Manager in 2018.
When she isn’t processing payroll or badgering her fellow coworkers for receipts, you can find Clarissa hanging out with her husband and dogs or planning her next vacation!
