Marissa serves as the Policy Director at the Equality State Policy Center strategizing and advocating for fair elections, transparent government, and thriving communities in Wyoming. 

Before joining ESPC, Marissa received a B.S. in Justice Systems and a B.A. in Psychology from Truman State University. After moving out to Wyoming and graduating from the University of Wyoming's Master in Public Administration program, Marissa worked with the Wyoming Women's Foundation to delve into Wyoming policy as it relates to women's economic self-sufficiency.

When she isn't renovating her house in Laramie, she's spending time outside, however, the Wyoming wind allows her to.


Rosa serves as a Civic Engagement Director for the Equality State Policy Center.

Rosa is originally from Alamo, Texas but called Mississippi home before moving to Rock Springs in 2018 with her husband Scottie Pugh. Rosa attended Western Wyoming Community College where she connected with the Hispanic/Latino community on campus. During her time at Western, she discovered she can assist her community and mobilized to assist the off-campus Hispanic community in Rock Springs. 

Rosa and Scottie own a photography company which allows them to explore Sweetwater County during their free time. Rosa has two fur children, Walt and Wimpy whom she loves dearly.
