Maria comes to the CAC in pursuit of her passion and personal commitment to help others through direct advocacy and support. From a young age, Maria has been committed to helping and supporting family, friends, and strangers in her community as a bilingual (English & Spanish) resource. She graduated from Ferris State University with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a minor in Leadership & Supervision. Maria is co-chair of our JEDI committee and works to promote organizational policies that promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion for the children, families, and staff at the CAC. In her free time, Maria enjoys having date nights with her husband, hanging out with friends, but above all else, her favorite thing is spending time with her son.
