Name: Marissa Astrain
Title: Director of Wish Delivery
Before joining Make-A-Wish® Arizona: I worked at a no-kill animal shelter, Arizona Animal Welfare League.

About me: I am an Arizona native and recently graduated from ASU. I have worked with a variety of nonprofits ranging from children organizations to exotic animal sanctuaries! My favorite of the exotic animals? Snakes! I also love reading, watching movies, eating Thai food!
My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Arizona: Knowing I am helping children with life-threatening illnesses get their one true wish!
My wish would be: to go on Safari in Africa!
