Maria joined the LVSS team in September 2018 as Operations Manager.
Her working career is expansive and includes positions in the private, public and nonprofit sectors. Maria started her career as a legal secretary for one of the largest firms in Vancouver, worked in the communications depart of a large forestry company, managed a 60,000 square foot facility in the visual effects and post production industry and was program coordinator for a government funded smoking cessation program run by the Canadian Cancer Society.
Born in Portugal and raised in Vancouver, for the past 18 years, Maria has been a resident of the north shore, where she raised her two children. One of her favourite hobbies is hiking the trails of the north shore with her golden retriever. Maria has a great sense of community and looks forward to working with the residents of Lynn Valley.
