About Carissa Gingras
As Marketing Director of Consumer Engines and Service at Briggs and Stratton, it’s her conversations with dealers and consumers about the industry, trends and products that Carissa enjoys the most. The opportunity to write for the Briggs PowerSmarts blog is simply an extension of those conversations that excite her.
