Marissa Polascak

Marissa Polascak

Content Specialist

Born and raised in Hamilton, New Jersey, Marissa Polascak moved to the Grand Strand at the age of 14. Getting over the culture-shock was difficult at first, but after almost a decade of living within miles of the Atlantic Ocean, she is now proud to call Myrtle Beach home. Of course, Marissa loves to create content for, but in her spare time you may catch her basking in the sun on the beautiful beach, playing arcade games, trying to become better at guitar, or acting in local theater. On those less-than-busy days, Marissa enjoys spending time with her long-time boyfriend Jordan and their two pets: Buddha the pug and Lando Calrissian the bunny.
