Maria Hettel

Office Manager

I joined Cypress in June 2019 and this is my first time working in the medical field. I was drawn to Cypress because of my desire to live a more holistic life and passion for helping people. At Cypress I have the opportunity to support an amazing team of specialists while helping patients live healthier and more wholesome lives. Prior management experience includes retail and a leading yoga studio based in Washington, DC.

My educational background is in International Development and Law with particular focus on Food Security – I believe that everybody should always have access to safe and nutritious food to lead an active and healthy life. I have worked on various types of farms including permaculture and organic. Prior to starting at Cypress, I lived in Ghana, West Africa, where I served as an agriculture extension volunteer for Peace Corps.

I enjoy traveling, hiking, scuba diving and experiencing different cultures and food. I am also a certified yoga instructor.
