Fierce Women Fridays: August 12, 2022

Over the next several weeks, we want to use the Fierce Woman platform to spotlight members of NextGroup's growing team of professionals who are dedicated to our vision of a more diverse, flexible and productive workplace.

Marissa J. Elliott- NextGroup Talent Operations and Fierce Woman
Marissa Elliott, former Evanstonian who recently located to Lake Forest with her family (we won't hold that against her).  Marissa  is a “janine-of-all-trades” who excels at all things operations.  

Marissa started her career in Human Resources and now returns to the workforce in that capacity to manage Talent Operations for NextGroup.  

While raising her children, Marissa lent her expertise in several areas.  She has extensive knowledge and experience in education.  She worked as a preschool teacher and became a certified teacher in Illinois.  More recently she became immersed in the world of interior design and spent several years as a design consultant. Marissa has served extensively on the parent boards where her children have attended school.  She holds a B.S. from The University of Illinois, a M. Ed from DePaul University and a M.S. in Human Resources and Industrial Relations from Loyola University- Chicago.  

From taking point on program and event execution to being responsible for NextGroup’s various talent communications, Marissa keeps the team moving forward so we can support as many women as possible in fulfilling their career goals.

Marissa knows first hand the twists and turns career and work can take as you tend to all the responsibilities of being a parent, child, caregiver, professional, and community volunteer/investor.  

She brings a calm and smiling fiercedom to NextGroup and everything she touches.
