Play for Real is delighted to welcome our new receptionist, Maria Malone, to the team! Maria will be working for you on Monday afternoons and all day Tuesday and Friday, so this is when you stand the best chance of talking to a real person if you call our office!

Maria was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.  She lived there most of her life until she relocated to Viera, Florida with her family in September 2017. Maria began working as an Orthopedic transcriptionist and secretary in 1989 while in college and continued in that field for over 20 years. She is excited to be using her many years of office experience at Play for Real.

Maria also developed a great interest in natural childbirth and breastfeeding after the birth of her youngest daughter in 2006. She is a certified childbirth educator with Lamaze International and a certified lactation counselor with The Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice.

Maria has been married to her husband Rich for nearly 23 years and they have three children. As the mom of a child who has received both speech and occupational therapy, Maria is intimately familiar with the positive impact these interventions can have.

In her spare time, Maria enjoys taking long walks with her dog Hope, singing and reading books and articles about anything “birthy.”
