Maria Garcia Brennan joined Northern Light School in 2012 and during her time at NLS has held roles in Development and Admissions. She graduated from California State University, Stanislaus with a BS in Accounting.  Maria strongly believes a solid education and a supportive community are the most important tools we can equip our children with to have continued success in their lives.

“My family immigrated to the US from Mexico when I was five years old to pursue a better life.  Thanks to my academic foundation and the support of many in my community, I’ve had the opportunity to go to college, have a career, and even start my own company -- things I didn’t even dream about as a child.  I love that at Northern Light School students are told every day to dream big, and that they have the obligation to go out and make a difference in the lives of others.  I’m proud to now have the opportunity to pay back the help I received when I was a student, by supporting NLS students in the pursuit of their dreams for many years to come.” Maria Garcia Brennan
