Chief Operating Officer
Maria was born and raised in the west side suburbs of Cleveland in the small town of Amherst, Ohio. She was a competition cheerleader growing up and graduated from Amherst Steele High School.
She attended the University of Toledo with a major in Television Broadcasting but quickly found a love for technology and marketing. That, combined with her natural interpersonal communication skills, led her to start working for an Internet company based out of San Diego, California. After about 2 years, Maria was offered a management position in the San Diego office and in 2007, moved to Fallbrook, California. Over her 8 1/2 year career with the company, she managed offices both here in the states as well as overseas and was given the opportunity to work in every department ranging from Customer Service to Human Resources to Sales and Marketing.
In the summer of 2013, Maria and her three children moved back to Ohio to be closer to her family. She worked in direct sales for about a year before she was hired as the Director of Business Development at Aligned Health Center.
Maria now lives in her hometown of Amherst with her three children Nevaeh, Alexander, and Calvin. She enjoys outdoor activities with her kids, cooking, football, and spends several days a week in the gym weightlifting.
