NNI welcomes Mara H. Castro as our new Program Coordinator. Mara grew up in an Arizonan border town with Sonora, Mexico where she learned to value traditions and cultures. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Arizona. Mara worked as a research specialist for several years in both academia and the private sector. She later founded a Montessori School where she served as Head of School for more than 10 years. In this role, she learned to manage, to guide, and most importantly to serve her community. Mara is excited to bring her experience to NNI. She is eager to learn about tribal policies to better assist Indigenous governance. In her free time, Mara enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, listening to audiobooks, and hiking.
