Maria was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and is a proud graduate of the Philadelphia High School for Girls. After marrying, the military took her family to Hampton Roads where she accepted employment with Andy Shilling as his legal secretary. Maria and Andy have been working together since 2007, where she has become well versed on both North Carolina and Virginia law, and transitioned to a paralegal role.
In 2018, after some big (but good) life changes, Maria and her husband decided to move to King George, Virginia. After speaking with Andy, arrangements were made for Maria to begin working remotely. She has been working remotely ever since.
While not working, Maria’s favorite things to do are spend time with her family, especially her children, and visit her neighborhood beach to just float peacefully on the Potomac. She also enjoys traveling around the country with her husband to watch her Eagles play at various stadiums. Maria’s Eagles trips to date are Philly, Baltimore, Washington, Minnesota, Vegas, a very, VERY COLD Chicago, and her favorite stadium so far – Green Bay.
