Marilise recently completed two short films, playing the head hospice nurse in "This Joyless Place" and a grandmother estranged from her daughter in "Each 'N Every." She is in preproduction for "Maternity Leave," a full-length thriller. Think Laila Robins or Patricia Clarkson. Current training: MN Acting Studio (film/TV) w/ Van Hansis. During a 20-year hiatus from acting, she worked to preserve Indigenous cultures and languages, and now supports a program returning buffalo to Native American reservations.
