As a child interpreter from a very young age, Maria has been committed to advocacy, and supporting family, friends, and strangers in her community. Maria comes to the CAC in pursuit of her passion and personal commitment to help others through direct advocacy and support. She is bilingual (English & Spanish) and is less than a year away from completing her Bachelor's in Business Administration, with a double minor in Leadership & Supervision, and Human Resources Management from Ferris State University. In her free time, Maria enjoys spending time with her family, traveling to visit her in-laws in San Diego, CA, and relaxing on the beaches of Baja California, MX. But, above all else, her favorite thing is enjoying time with her son.
