Maria grew up in Mexico City and moved to Texas when she was a teenager.

Maria is dedicated to equipping parents and caregivers with the tools and strategies needed to support bilingual language development at an early age. As a bilingual speech pathologist, Maria understands the critical role that early intervention plays in shaping a child’s communication skills.
