Aisha Maroon joined the Foundation as the Director of Membership and Outreach in August 2017.

Before being on a brief hiatus where she was staying home with her children; Mrs. Maroon worked with notable associations such as the San Diego Marketing Association and The Monterey County Conventions and Visitors Bureau managing marketing and membership relations. She has also worked at Cuisine Solutions, which is an American premium foods company that specializes in the sous-vide method of cooking and meal preparation, as their Sales Representative for National Chain Accounts.

She greatly enjoyed taking on the task of reigniting the NPS Alumni Association and looks forward to seeing how it grows. She has now taken on stewarding foundation-funded research. Working in partnership with foundation VP Todd Lyons she is re-engineering donor engagement and project development processes to maximize giving opportunities while also innovating the procedures for managing research projects.

She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism with a focus in Public Relations from the University of Hawaii, which is where she met her husband who is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the MOVES program here at NPS. They reside in Monterey with their two children.
