A life of service was the calling for Maria. A child of the 60’s, who was awakened at a tender age, and reawakened years after to what would become a reclamation of the truth. Many ‘becomings’ have set Maria on a path to the ‘recoverings’ of what the soul in her has sought — oneness.
She became a caretaker of her own mother at age 6, and for decades thereafter, an emergency medical technician at 18, a respiratory therapist at 23 and a medical doctor at 32. A monumental transformative move in her life manifested through the study of macrobiotics. This was a tremendous inspiration for Maria who moved deeply into this understanding of true health without any boundaries or constraints that seemed to be ever-present in all that she had experienced and was taught via ‘standard’ methods.
The teachings and practices of ‘conventional’ medicine had many conflicts that she was awakened to, and it was through masterful teachings from ancient cultures that she was led to a more complete and purer expression of what it meant to be a doctor.
Desiring to spread the message of truth in health, she attained a diploma in naturopathy to become a naturopathic medical doctor at 38. An owner of a health food store would be another coming,
Owning a health food store would be another opening along with developing and managing a beautiful community garden that helps educate and nourish hundreds of people. She had helped cultivate an elementary school garden having enlisted educators to participate in a project that now serves as a model for other schools to emulate. Maria and her husband co-own a very successful medical practice in Tampa Bay, Florida, that employs nearly one thousand people across several counties. She delivers lectures twice monthly at her practice on health topics for patients, staff and the community and writes extensively on prevention and management of disease using integral healing methodology.
Maria has recently founded an integral wellness center that is presently under construction and will soon open for all to be a part of this journey to complete healthfulness. She is also currently working on a book on awakening to ‘true wholeness’ in health.
Together with her husband, Maria is devoted to a life of teaching and living a complete and undivided truth for all members of this planet.
