Hailing from the Lake Champlain Islands in northwestern Vermont, Marielle spent her childhood climbing mountains and trees, swimming in the lake, reading books, dancing, and dreaming of the stage.
Marielle earned her BFA in acting from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She trained at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting and Stonestreet Studios. There, she studied with teachers including Mark Rylance, Elizabeth Parrish, Jimmy Tripp, Ted Slubersky, Andy Roth, and more. Marielle received a Tisch Award for Outstanding Acting work at her studio. Since graduating, she has continued her studies in classical theatre with actor/teacher Joe Siravo, acting technique with Fay Simpson of the Lucid Body, and trained in voiceover work with John McKinney, casting director of Pomann Sound, and Bruce Kronenburg of Abacus Audio.
Most recently, Marielle has been seen onstage playing Hedda Gabler in Hedda, an exploration of Ibsen’s classic work at the HERE Arts Center in NYC, and as Lady Macbeth in Macbeth as a part of ShakespeareLIVE!, an educational tour from the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey (Wall Street Journal’s 2014 Company of the Year). She has appeared off-Broadway in Bill W. & Dr. Bob (college tour premiere).
Marielle’s voiceover work includes audiobooks, radio and television commercials. She freelances with Toni Silveri of All Coast Talent.
As a model, she has been featured in Dark Beauty Magazine and Redken’s 50 Years of Redken Campaign.
When not performing, Marielle enjoys yoga, painting, reading, ukulele, sea otters, and cooking with buffalo sauce.
