Maria was born in Bangladesh, but adopted and raised in Rochester, New York. She desired to live in another state for college, so she attended Clark University (Worcester, MA) for her undergraduate degree. She graduated May 2013, earning her B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Economics. Maria played many intramural sports during her undergraduate career, including basketball, soccer, and softball. She was also a student ambassador, a member of Students Advocating Safe Choices, and earned membership to the Fiat Lux Honors Society. Travel is highly valued in her family, which has enabled her to visit over half of the U.S. states and seven different countries. When she’s not traveling, Maria enjoys running, cooking, reading a good book or catching up on a good show.
Maria serves as the Admission Counselor for North New Jersey (down to Mercer and Monmouth counties), Central PA (Huntingdon, Centre, Clinton and Lycoming counties), Long Island, Upstate/Central New York (Monroe over to Jefferson counties and all the way down to the PA border) and Texas!
