Anna Maria Maybury’s passion for early childhood development and giving every child the opportunity for a happy and fulfilling life syncs well with Project Left Behind’s mission of promoting education and improved nutrition and living conditions for orphaned and neglected children around the world. Maybury is no stranger to Project Left Behind, as she stepped off the board of directors to take on her new role. In addition, prior to becoming a board member, she did work with Project Left Behind in Tanzania, Panama and Peru. “Anna Maria’s experience with non-profits and international volunteering, as well as her organizational skills and passion for PLB’s mission, make her a true asset to the organization,” said Danielle Livolsi, founder of Project Left Behind and NuttZo. After an eight-year career in special events, and seven years dedicated to pharmaceutical sales, Maybury took a three-year self-guided sabbatical, volunteering abroad in underprivileged communities. Upon her return to the U.S. in mid-2013, she worked at Voices for Children, an organization that advocates for children in foster care. Maybury lives in San Diego County with her husband and twin toddlers. She enjoys spending time in nature, experiencing off-the-beaten-path travel to faraway lands, studying Spanish and watching her little girls blossom.
