My name is Maria Nicolaou, and I am the Training and Program Manager at UCDD. I have been working at UCDD since 2003 and have held various positions (Teacher Assistant, Supervisor, Counselor and Training Specialist). I have earned my BA and MA degrees in Communication and Marketing from CSUSB. I am fortunate to be able to work with such a wonderful team of individuals at UCDD, some of whom have become lifelong friends. My motivation is our UCDD program, where our clients meet their success, and our employees enjoy coming to work. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, hosting friends for coffee or dinner, going on trips and planning new adventures.
