Marisa D. Higgins, Ph.D.

Writer | Educator | Dancer 

My name is Marisa Higgins. I describe myself as a gritty intellectual who excels at creating content that unites communities for experiential learning. Being a lifelong learner and an educator, I am dedicated to creating engaging storytelling and producing enriching learning experiences. As a passionately curious person, I care about unveiling truths, seeking out knowledge, and crafting thoughtfully written pieces. 

​I hold a Master of Arts in English, and a Ph.D. in Literary Studies. My work as a dancer and yoga teacher (RYT-200) richly informed my academic research experience. I've continued to use my interest in the human body to shape how I view writing—fluid, embodied, a performance of self.
