Maria has a diverse career background and as well as doing nursing she has been an English trainer, a customer service coach and managed an American consultancy company in the Philippines. Her move to New Zealand was her personal pursuit to find more challenges and meaning in life. She found all this being an aged care Registered Nurse, initially in Wellington and later in Auckland.

Maria feels a strong connection with the elderly and derives enormous satisfaction from looking after people and working with a talented team committed to giving quality care. She considers it an absolute privilege to grow in her clinical leadership.

With her postgraduate qualification, Advanced Nursing, Leadership and Management from the University of Auckland, she intends to use her knowledge and skills to inspire nurses to pursue a long-term career in aged care, as well as lead the team to constantly make a positive difference in people’s lives.
