My name is Maria S. I graduated from East Carolina in 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Recreational Therapy. I have experience in long term care nursing homes working with older adults on fine motor skills, brain activities, adaptive sports, memory games, and much more. I completed my 600+ hour internship at a nursing facility in Honolulu, and absolutely loved my experience there. I am very compassionate and enjoy helping others and bettering their lifestyle. I am now a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist and look forward to my future career.
