About Maria

I am still serving in the Army as a 42A (Human Resources), stationed in Hawaii but I am planning on ETSing in November 2025 and pursue a career in the Marine Biology sector. I would like to take the necessary steps now while still serving to ensure I have my plan set in stone before I ETS. I am a mom of a 1-year-old little girl which leaves me with little time during my day as I spend a lot of time caring for her. My passion includes helping both animals and people which is how I came around Marine Biology as a major to pursue. I will be helping people educate themselves on our ocean life and steps we can all take to better our oceanic life.
