Maurissa Joan Sorensen was born and raised in Southern California. As a
former foster youth from the ages of 12-18 she knows all too well the
importance of children finding forever families. A Harvard Alumni with
a Masters of Education in Human Development and Psychology, she is
currently applying to MSW programs in the LA area. Maurissa is a true
advocate for all children in the foster care system and hopes to see
more youth like her make it to Harvard and beyond. As a board member Maurissa will use her personal and academic experience to help SCFFAA continue to be the leading agency in placing youth and young children in happy, healthy, and forever homes.
