Maria's Parents, Michael and Alita Dorn
Maria’s parents serve as key pillars of Project Maria.

One capacity in which they do so is as guest speakers.

Michael, Maria’s father, is willing to speak to different groups, such as middle or high school health classes. (However, as a full-time educator, he does need advance notice.)  Alita, Maria’s mother, has experience with speaking to various health professionals about eating disorders, as she works within the field too.

Both of them are willing to consider reasonable speaking requests as long as their travel expenses are covered.

If you are looking to contact both or one of them, please use our Contact form, or send an email to
