Maria was born in Moroleón, Guanajuato, Mexico. She arrived in the United States in 1994 with her parents and two older sisters. She believes that everyone should be given the opportunity to live a better life of their choosing. Even though the immigration process can be complicated, she hopes to provide assistance to those applying because it can become a life-changing experience.
Maria graduated with an Advanced Studies Diploma from Stonewall Jackson High School. She took part in the National Honor Society and Art Guild. Maria also attended Triplett Tech where she studied Criminal Justice through Lord Fairfax Community College and received her Criminal Justice Diploma and Police Science Diploma.
Maria previously worked at Mount Calvary Day Care Center located in Mount Jackson, Virginia. She worked with children all ages, eventually focusing on an individual age group. She was able to see that each child had their own way of learning and dealing with life’s stressors, which is why she believes families should be united to support each other.
Maria is the mother of two young children, Diego and Aranza, her pride and joy with whom she loves to share life’s adventures. She enjoys spending time with her family, doing her nails, assisting others in need, shopping, and learning new areas of expertise.
