After high school Marisol attended Washington State University and began a bachelor’s degree in business.  Taking full advantage of all the resources available to help with her course work, but unfortunately she was not excelling in her classes. It was during her second year at WSU she decided to change her environment that would be to her benefit, hence Marisol's transfer to Central Washington University. Upon transferring to CWU she got the opportunity of becoming a Student Ambassador for the College of Business. As a student ambassador she has gotten the opportunity to connect more with her advisors, meet successful business people, and the ability to have a professional relationship with her teachers. 
"The College of Business has given me so many opportunities in just one short year than I have ever been able to experience in my college career"
"With smaller class sizes, professors have time to interact with the students"
During the months of July and August of 2015 Marisol had the opportunity to intern with a major whole sale company, Creative Imports based in Chicago Illinois. Creative Imports is an evening gown dress warehouse designed by Mac Duggal. She also got the chance to work with him one on one and insight on how he started his company.  Within the sales division she was responsible for inputting product and quantity of product available. Some of her responsibilities was to make sure all buyers had a product list with pricing and to work back stage providing assistance where needed. During this internship she experienced sales, purchasing, and distribution. "One of my favorite parts was assisting in a 3 day fashion show, displaying the spring 2016 prom line"
In Feburary 2017, Marisol was selected to represent CWU Business at the annual US Hispanic Institute National Conference in Chicago, IL. Upon her return, we stated:
The USHLI conference was very inspiring for a young Latina woman. I was impressed with the wide range of not only successful males but also successful women. Once I heard the statistic of only 3% of  Latinas have their PHD this conference just gave me reassurance that I can break that statistic because all I need is as much “courage as a mustard seed”- Mateo R. Magdaleno , he gave one of the most motivational speeches about believing in yourself that I will think about every day. Could not have attend a more inspiring conference.
