Maria joined the staff as a receptionist in August 2001, but transitioned to her current role in 2009. With compassion and kindness, she enjoys helping families during one of the most difficult times in their lives. She is also helpful to the many visitors at Old Mission/Wichita Park.
Maria was born in upstate New York, and believes her desire to help people comes from being part of a large family. She moved to Kansas at age 4, and has lived in Valley Center since 1980. She is a member of St. Jude Catholic Church, and enjoys participating with her family in athletic events in Wichita. She and her husband, David, have three children and eight grandchildren.
