As an individual with visual impairment, Mayra is able to support and understand diverse populations who deal with accepting their own physical/learning disabilities along with other challenges that life presents them.

Mayra’s parents immigrated from Mexico. She was born and raised in Los Angeles County. In her youth, sheI struggled with expressing her thoughts and feelings in relation to her physical disability. She always knew that she wanted and needed support to process her challenges.

Encountering additional stressors as an adolescent and young adult motivated her to pursue a profession that helped people address their life challenges and barriers. She wanted to be the person who she needed as a youth for other individuals struggling to talk about and process stressors and traumas in their own lives.

When she isn’t working, Mayra enjoys listening to audibles and podcasts that inspire her to be a better person. She also enjoys spending quality time with friends and family members.
