During her tenure in federal service, she spent ten years as the Senior District Staff for Arkansas' 2nd Congressional District Congressman, Vic Snyder, until his retirement in January 2011. She is a native of Mayflower, Arkansas and a graduate of Philander Smith College where she received a B.A. in English and Communications. She is married to a loving and supportive husband, Archie, and is blessed to be the mother of two wonderful and special young ladies, Christina and Victoria - named for the princesses they are.

Maria's goal is to share her childhood memories in the form of stories that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Through these stories, Maria hopes to remind children that reading and writing can open doors that allow experiences and memories to come back to life.
