Maggie Melone-Echiburú is the Director of the Hartnell NASA SEMAA. Maggie has been with NASA SEMAA since January 2011 as the site Director. She is a seasoned bilingual and biliterate professional with more than fifteen years of experience in senior organizational management.  Maggie is passionate about education and believes that every child should be given the tools at an early age to enjoy their path through the educational system and be prepared to continue their education once they graduate from high school. She is very proud to see how Hartnell SEMAA has grown during the past couple of years and is hoping to reach more and more students in our county and beyond. Maggie also is very active in the community, participating in several boards, including the Boronda Meadows PTC, The Sustainability Academy, the Monterey County Workforce Investment Board and the Central Coast Broadband Consortium. She enjoys her free time cooking, hiking and traveling with her husband and three children.
