Karissa was blessed to be born in Jackson, where she learned the values of hospitality, kindness, hard work and being neighborly. After spending several years back and forth between Las Vegas, (for high school and college) and Jackson, Karissa made the move back to Jackson permanently in 2016. A recent transition from the banking industry has led her to WTE where she is excited to be part of the foundation of growing our community. She's worked in customer service since she was 14 and people have become her profession. Whether it be through working with the incredible team at WTE, acting, writing and performing music, or serving as a board member for a local non-profit theatre company; people and their experiences are at the center of everything she does. Reliability, some grit, and the "pull up your bootstraps and get it done" mentality is what she strives for and WTE is the embodiment of that standard.
