Maria Harris

Hola! My name is Maria Harris and I am a first-generation Latina and proud UWSP Alumna! I’m originally from California but have lived in Mexico, Arizona, Illinois and now have lived in Stevens Point since 2011 and haven’t left since. Fun fact about me, I attended three universities and changed my major four times before I finally graduated from UW-Stevens Point with a Psychology-Human Services Emphasis Major and a Child, Youth, & Family Studies Minor. I’ve always been passionate about people facing careers and feel so privileged to be a Pointer again serving in this role and supporting students.

I married my best friend (who is also a UWSP Alum) in January 2020 and we have a labradoodle named Porter who we treat like our child and take everywhere with us! In the summer I really enjoy cooking, running, golfing, biking, hiking, really anything that allows me to get fresh air and sunlight. In the winter, I enjoy sitting by the fireplace and catching up on reality shows like Real Housewives,

Love is Blind, or The Bachelor. On any given night you can catch me at either Father Fats, Point After, or the Library Café with friends.

Don’t be shy and come say hi and check out our center!
