“I expect that (experience) will be a help with the United Way of Oxford, both as a way for raising money and for saving money,” she said.
Maldonado-Fuller said she sees her new role as helping facilitate more understanding and cooperation among people in the community committed to helping others.
“I’m very, very excited. I was part of an initiative in Texas all about working with funded agencies to identify programs they could work on together,” she said.
She said she looks forward to that work in the Oxford community.
“It seems like everybody knows each other. I’m excited to be part of a community where people are committed,” she said.
She invites anyone to contact her with ideas or thoughts on the social services in Oxford.
“I am open to hearing from people about ideas for the community. If we want to have an impact on the community, we have to hear from the community,” Maldonado-Fuller said.
Maldonado-Fuller and her husband, Justin Fuller, live in the Wyoming area of Cincinnati. He works as a computer engineer for Northrup-Grumman. They are expecting their first child in May.
