A native New Yorker, Maria studied at New York University (NYU), receiving a Bachelor of Science degrees in both Nursing and Psychology. In prior roles, she performed research for Mount Sinai Medical Center, and, after moving to Florida, worked at Winnie Palmer Hospital as a Labor and Delivery OR/PACU (operating room, recovery room, and post-anesthesia care) nurse.

Maria loves working with women and supporting them mentally and physically on their fertility journey. When she’s not helping patients, Maria likes to relax on the beach with her husband and spend quality time with her fur baby, Goober.
