Meet the Board of Directors: Maria Steck

Get to Know the Vice President for Leadership, Maria Steck

Maria Steck, Vice President for Leadership Services, has been involved in PTA for 19 years. Her favorite thing about PTA is working with our local leaders. She loves hearing about all the great things they are doing for the families in their communities.

Maria lives by the beach in Ventura County with her awesome hubby. She has three phenomenal kids, two rescue dogs that have her wrapped around their little paws, a female spider named Harry, and two grand kitties who live in Portland. She manages two Airbnb rentals on the beach in Malibu.

She loves reading, crafting, hiking with her hubby and the dogs, traveling, cooking new and different foods. She is a shoe-a-holic. She loves Converse tennis shoes and currently owns 27 pairs.

Her one piece of advice to PTA leaders is the immortal words of Elsa, “let it go.” There is always going to be criticism of the things you and the PTA do. As long as at the end of the day, you know you did your best for the kids, then don’t stress. Her favorite quote is from Eleanor Roosevelt, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
