Maricela graduated from Maric College in California as a certified medical assistant in 2006 and began her career in family practice. After having her daughter in 2017, she decided to try something new and joined Affiliated Dermatology as a medical assistant at the Gilbert location. Then she transferred to our Scottsdale location after a few months and was able to strengthen her skills in a fast-paced environment where she became a lead medical assistant. In 2020, Maricela took on the role of operations supervisor where she discovered a passion for leadership. This journey continued in February 2021 when Maricela accepted a Regional Operations Manager role in the East Valley. She truly enjoys making people smile and helping anyone who is in need.

When Maricela is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, crafting, and being outdoors.
