Marielle serves as the Digital Marketing Fellow Whaler, optimizing editorial content and executing digital advertising campaigns for Whole Whale and our clients. She received her BS in Public Health from Rutgers University before pursuing a Mini-MBA in Digital Marketing from Rutgers Business School. Similar to how the practice of Public Health brings needed health services and communications into communities, Marielle is excited to leverage digital tools and data to bring audiences the right content at the right time and increase impact.
Prior to her position at Whole Whale, Marielle supported multiple nonprofits in many capacities. Marielle spent many long nights at Rutgers’ independent daily newspaper, The Daily Targum, where she developed her skills in writing, editing, and photography—She peaked the second time she took photos of President Obama. Marielle is particularly impassioned by issues surrounding environmental protection and climate change. Her community organizing work at Food & Water Watch helped raise more than $8000 for the Standing Rock and Ramapough Lunaape Nations to combat oil pipeline construction on Native territories. She most recently supported marketing and business development efforts down the street from Whole Whale’s DUMBO office at Big Duck, a communications firm serving nonprofits by building strong brands, campaigns, and teams.
When Marielle is not in the office, you can find her reading in Fort Greene Park, doing hot yoga, learning French, and browsing shows for 20 minutes before settling on The Office for the millionth time.
