Marissa Forsyth

Member Relations Manager

[email protected]

Marissa's life technically began in the bayous of Southeast Texas, but she likes to think she was destined to be weird in Austin. From a very young age, the dream to attend UT was her main motivation, and performing on stage was everything else. Always having a sincere passion for anything containing the word "art," she had incredible opportunities working at Austin Women's Magazine and the Austin Film Festival while getting her degree in Theatre and Dance. Now with her biggest dream fulfilled, she feels blessed beyond words to be a part of Junebug - a magical place that combines her love of magazine journalism, creativity, fashion and collaboration. Along with these, her heart shares space with her other loves of the outdoors, being with family, yoga, and of course all things Longhorn.

Jessica Arnold

Account Executive

Jessica is a native Texan residing in Austin since 2011. As a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Retail Merchandising, Jessica is ecstatic to bring her vast experience in the retail industry, sense of style, and her keen eye for beauty to the Junebug team. A self-acclaimed "foodie," she loves testing out Austin's hottest new restaurants, attending UT football games, and catching up on the latest episode of The Bachelorette.

Juliette Prado

Editorial Assistant

[email protected]

Juliette is a true Austinite who thrives on reading and writing about shared human experiences – so you might say writing about weddings for Junebug is a dream job! She recently left the technical writing world to pursue more creative passions, including website design, blog writing, and travel photography. When she’s not working, she's most likely planning her next adventure around the world with her husband.

Colleen Merchant

Editorial Intern

[email protected]

Colleen is a creative currently residing in Oklahoma City. She is always up to trying new things and exploring new places - so much so that she moved half way across the country from her hometown in Florida. Twice. She's a wedding and lifestyle photographer who loves love and sharing in other people's joy - this made her spot on Junebug's team an easy and fun fit. She gets her best work done at local coffee shops or at home with early 2000s pop and hiphop playing in the background. When she isn't working, she likes to dream up her next trip and listen to true crime podcasts.
