Education & Outreach Coordinator
Maria graduated from Middlebury College, where she majored in environmental studies. After working as Crew Leader for the Northwoods’ Kingdom Corps in 2002, Maria spent time exploring the West and the wider world.
She made a home away from home in Jackson, Wyoming, where she worked as a nordic coach, interned at a Conservation Alliance, gardened, and explored the Tetons on telemark skis. Maria has led a community service trip in Costa Rica, helped build a small library high in the mountains of the Himalayas, explored outdoor recreation inside the classroom and out in New Zealand, and studied conservation efforts in the highlands of Guatemala.
In 2009, Maria returned to the Northeast Kingdom and joined the Northwoods staff as Education and Outreach Coordinator.
Through each of these explorations, travels, and homes it is the connection between people and their landscape that has most captivated her. The Green Mountains of home have called her back, and Maria is delighted to be working at NorthWoods, once again learning, teaching, sharing and exploring in her favorite place of all.
