Marissa Southwell

Marissa Southwell is a Manager of Corporate Services – “Corporate services includes a variety of work areas like human resources, IT, customer services, administration, corporate governance, records, risk management and finance. After college I completed my commerce degree, while working on King Island for the King Island Council as their Finance and Administration Manager. I worked in London in the finance industry and even as a snowboard instructor before moving to St Helens on the beautiful east coast of Tasmania. There is flexibility to balance your work/life needs and there are opportunities to live in some amazing places. My life style is certainly envied by many of my friends!”
