Mareesa Allen is the administrative assistant at RPM, which makes her the first voice you hear over the phone, and the first smile you meet in the office. She operates both on the front line and behind the scenes, assisting clients and attorneys, and maintaining an orderly, well-stocked supply room (and coffee station). “No small act goes unnoticed,” is Mareesa’s philosophy; and she delights in knowing her support equips the team to best serve our clients. Here at RPM, we value relationships with our clients; so regardless of the legal matter, Mareesa warmly greets each person to ensure their welcome and comfort.
Mareesa is originally from Northern Illinois and holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Vocal Performance. She loves to connect with people and believes diverse languages and cultures offer new lenses through which to see the world. She lived in Miami for about 3 years, entonces si hablas español, a ella le gustaría practicar contigo! Although new to Grand Rapids, Mareesa has settled in quickly and looks forward to many years in this vibrant city. She enjoys singing in the church choir and teaches voice lessons in her free time. Each week, she meets with friends to play volleyball (watch out for her wicked serve) and belongs to a women’s book club. At the end of the day, Mareesa visits her husband to cook one of their many favorite meals and appreciates nature with a walk around the neighborhood. With the many bird-watching opportunities in Michigan, she’s never disappointed! So much beauty exists all around; and especially in this day and age, it’s important to pause and recognize the small things that bring us joy. Mareesa hopes to share that joy in every aspect of life.
