Our Admissions Counselor – Maurie Simons – is recognized by Diamond Ranch Academy as an incredibly, wonderful, person. She has been with DRA for seven years. Most of those years have been with a phone to her ear. She works with parents when they are considering DRA as a school choice. Maurie said the most rewarding part of her job is introducing parents to DRA in the beginning and witnessing their struggle to make this difficult decision, to the happiness they experience when their child has found success at the end of the program.
Maurie is a blue/yellow on the color code. She said her blue helps her connect emotionally with parents, and her yellow helps her to love all kinds of people. Maurie is a practical joker. She enjoys life to its fullest. She has six children and one granddaughter, and gets the most satisfaction spending time with them. They enjoy movies, vacations by the ocean, and amusement parks. She is anxiously anticipating her new grandson in December.
Maurie said she “loves, loves, loves, her job”. She loves the parents, students, and staff at DRA. Each person is an integral part of DRA, but Maurie is the one of the first contacts at the school. She has an important role here and it does not go unnoticed. Her hard work and dedication has laid the foundation for the success of Diamond Ranch Academy.
