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.

And when she’s not talking about or playing with engines, she’s probably with her family and dogs, out on her boat, entertaining or indulging her foodie tendencies.
