Spanish-Speaking Family Resource Specialist
Mara joins the Moms In Motion team as a Family Resource Specialist. As with all endeavors she tackles, advocacy and early intervention for children with different abilities has become a passion of hers. A mother of two, her youngest was diagnosed with Autism at a very young age, so Mara understands firsthand the struggles families face when choosing the best services for their loved one.
Mara has served several families within her immediate community to assist them in obtaining all the best services that Virginia has to offer. She is currently working on a passion project of “inclusion in sports” with her local government, after realizing how many children with disabilities within her community were being under served. Nothing has prepared her more for a life of service and advocacy than watching her own child be excluded and sidelined. A supportive, compassionate, and giving person by nature, Mara will help guide all families Moms In Motion serves in the best way possible.
