Marissa Newhall - Director of Digital Strategy & Communications
Marissa joined the Office of Public Affairs in August 2013. As Director of Digital Strategy & Communications, she manages Energy.gov's digital content team and oversees the agency's digital reform project, an effort to cut wasteful spending by consolidating the agency's disparate websites onto a centralized, open-source platform.
Prior to coming on board, Marissa directed digital strategy and media relations at two energy-related nonprofit organizations in Washington, D.C., and received a master's degree in public policy from Georgetown University. In a prior life, she was a reporter and blogger at the Washington Post; in her current life, she bicycles everywhere, treats tacos like a food group and travels to warm, sunny places as much as possible.
