Maricela Macias

Office Manager and Registrar Maricela was born and raised in México. As a child, she remembers spending a lot of time at the “cerros” (hills) helping her parents taking care of the farm animals and harvesting crops. Her family moved to Fresno, CA, at the age of seven. She graduated high school and attended Fresno State University for two years. Maricela is a self-motivated professional with extensive experience and skills in customer service, office support, and registration. Having worked in 4 different call centers, she has interacted and maintained relationships with a variety of customers promoting, supporting and registering them on government programs. She is enthusiastic about working with WYP since her life values are aligned with WYP’s mission and values. Having developed a deep passion for nature and wanting to live in a place surrounded by it, she had initially moved to Grover Beach and recently transferred to Santa Barbara in November 2018. In her free time, she likes to visit family, go to the gym, the beach, hike, play tennis or just relax listening to an audiobook.
