Mariana Iova - Psycho-Pedagoguemariana iova

Mariana has taken on a very special role, as primary care giver to our boy Alex who has Down’s Syndrome.


Alex was one of the first children Rachel worked with in the hospital, and he is precious to the whole FMN team. He requires extra one to one care and attention, to take care of his day to day needs, and also to help him develop for the future.


Mariana entered this role with a degree in Psychopedagogy and many years of experience working with people with disabilities. Using this experience she takes care of Alex and has implemented many strategies and additions to his daily program with us, that have helped accelerate his development hugely in just a few months. He bonded with Mariana from the first moment she joined the team, and already hates when she has to take vacation breaks from work.


As well as working with Alex she has developed relationships with all the children who come daily to the Center, and helps the rest of our team of staff whenever needed.


We are so blessed to have Mariana on our team.
