Marissa Frangione Niles, M.S.

Director of Operations and Marketing

College Academic Coach

Marissa earned her Master of Science in Human Performance from the University of Florida and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of West Florida. During her time in graduate school, Marissa worked in the Career Resource Center where she helped students with career planning, organization, and time management skills.

Previously, Marissa worked with the United States Army where she taught soldiers academic performance training skills such as time and stress management, study techniques, and test-taking skills. These skills helped soldiers successfully complete coursework throughout their rigorous flight school training and during their trainings as a soldier on the range and as a pilot in the cockpit.

Marissa’s specialty is helping students increase their motivation and confidence by harnessing their mindset. She believes that with hard work and effort, anyone is capable of learning the skills they need to be successful in the classroom and in life.

In addition to her academic coaching position at ACA, Marissa works as the Director of Operations and Marketing.

She also is in charge of our social media and marketing campaigns.

When she is not working, you can find Marissa sweating it out in the gym, relaxing on the beautiful Florida beaches, or traveling with her husband and their sidekick Mia the Double Doodle!
