Maria is an undergrad intern here at Positive Directions. She attends Campbellsville University in Kentucky, soon earning her bachelor’s in Social Work. Maria is a member of the Alpha Chi Honor Society for being part of the top 10% of her grade. She has nine plus years’ experience working in the medical field performing direct, clinical patient care. She also volunteered at Connecticut Hospice working with actively dying patients and their loved ones. It is in this time that Maria found her true passion and direction for social work.
Maria is very excited to be a part of the Positive Directions team made up of incredibly talented, devoted, and committed staff. Her future goals are to receive her MSW, eventually PhD, and practice at either a Hospice facility or an Oncology floor in a hospital setting.
In her spare time Maria enjoys spending time with her husband, hiking, taking walks with her dogs, and being with friends and family.
