Marianna has been in Houston and with Houstonia since the (sweltering) summer of 2014. She started as the marketing & events director, planning some of the best parties the city has seen for almost two years. She now plans less parties…mostly just those for herself and her friends, but she’s still very much a part of the fun that goes on here.

A transplant from the Washington, D.C. area, Marianna attended the University of Texas in Austin and previously held a marketing & events position at D Magazine in Dallas. A cuddly, sweet pup and a handsome husband later, here she is in Clutch City, for hopefully her final stop in this great state.
