Marylisa Wood

Student Activities & Funding Board (SAFB) Coordinator

I was born and raised in Paradise, CA starting my higher education at Butte College and transferring to Southern Oregon University in Ashland, OR. I graduated with my bachelors in Communication Studies with a business certificate in Nonprofit Management. After I graduated I accepted a position in Minneapolis, MN as part of the national fundraising team for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. From there I continued my work with the National MS Society in Denver, CO while getting to enjoy all stunning outdoor splendor of the rockies. With a desire to be closer to family I accepted a position at California State University, Chico as the Student Organization Financial Coordinator where I found my love for working in higher education and supporting students. After four years at Chico State I was thrilled to accept a position at Cal Poly Humboldt bringing me to a location I have loved since a child and to a position that challenges and inspires me on a daily basis. I love exploring the magic of the redwoods and breathing in the fresh ocean air every day. I am honored to have the opportunity to support and encourage our students everyday as they build their own unique future's here at Cal Poly Humboldt.
When we drop fear, we can draw nearer to people, we can draw nearer to the earth, we can draw nearer to all the heavenly creatures that surround us. - Bell Hooks
Areas of Interest: 
I am passionate about Social Justice, Universal Free Healthcare, Mental Health Advocacy, Leadership Development, and Sustainability.
When I am not in the office I am exploring new trails, tide pools, finding live music or creating (writing, painting, or making playlists).
