About IvyWise

The IvyWise Team

Marcella Maki

Web Developer

Marcella is a full stack software developer responsible for updates and maintenance of the myIvyWise client portal. She coordinates with the COO, User Experience Designer, and Client Relations team to build and manage software that delivers an excellent online experience for clients and staff.

Prior to her work at IvyWise, she co-led the development of a data visualization tool at UNICEF’s Office of Innovation in New York. She has also supported software infrastructure for data science research and development and worked in database management.

Marcella graduated magna cum laude from Middlebury College with a B.A. in political science and minor in sociology. She has a background in political campaigning, academic research, and local government, and came to tech after seeing a disconnect between the products in big-name startups and those available for less-resourced services that can greatly improve people’s lives: city, non-profits, education, environmentalism, and accessibility.

If she’s not nerding out about data and politics (or both), you can find her cooking Italian food, walking around Brooklyn, and hanging out with her very chatty cat, Clem.
