Director of Program Services
Maria was born in the Bronx, NY, and is of Puerto Rican and Colombian descent, so she is fluent in Spanish. She is a Retired U.S. Army Commissioned Officer, Military Police Corp and is a member of several local veterans groups. She was even a Semi-Finalist in Ms. Veteran America 2019! She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Books!! And LOVES the mountains, camping, and swimming. But Maria’s first loves are her children – 6 in all – one of whom recently gave her the honor of becoming a grandma.
