Having lived in California, Alaska, Nevada, and Japan because her parents were in the Navy, Maria eventually moved to Nevada and graduated from Edward C. Reed High School in Sparks, NV.
She then moved on to the Truckee Meadows Community College and University Nevada, Reno ultimately graduating from the community college with her Associate of Science. Maria also attended the Career College of Northern Nevada to achieve her Pharmaceutical Technician Diploma.
Maria’s professional passions include education, medication safety, and compounding. She has always enjoyed educating the community and sharing her experiences with others with an emphasis on medication safety so that patients are able to be more compliant in their treatments.
For Maria, the best thing about working for Northwest Career College is having the opportunity to change someone’s life for the better through education. She gets to share all her experiences with them alongside the lesson plan. For Maria, it’s one thing to read a book, but it’s another to actually have a mentor go through the motions with you for better understanding.
In her spare time, Maria enjoys modeling, Zumba, and video games. She also loves to cook and bake.
Northwest Career College is committed to your success!
