Maria joined us as a SUN Site Manager, and recently moved positions to be the SUN Community School Manager for Latino Network. She manages the SUN programs for all of the schools that Latino Network leads.

Before working with Latino Network, Maria worked as an Extended Day Coordinator in Washington County and a Middle School Coordinator for Campfire, Inc. Coming from a Colombian family, Maria spent four years abroad completing two tours in the Peace Corps – two years in the Republic of Georgia and two years in Nicaragua. She has her masters in nonprofit education and an undergraduate degree in art history with a minor in Spanish and Italian.

When she isn’t working with Latino Network, Maria enjoys yoga and hiking, and her favorite part of living in Portland is being able to explore the Great Outdoors and easy access to nature.
