Maryam Mojadidi was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, where her entire family, including her grandparents, were imprisoned by the Soviet regime. Tragically, her father was assassinated when she was a young child. Her mother had no choice but to move her four children to Pakistan and ultimately to America, where, as a single mother, she raised Maryam and her siblings.
Maryam has worked in healthcare management for 20 years, holding positions with world-renowned physicians at Nezhat Institute Palo Alto, California, and Stanford Hospital and Clinics, including the Stanford Cancer Center.
Having lived through the conflicts of war, Maryam has deep empathy and understanding for other refugees. She is a devoted stay-at-home mom with her two children. Her goal is to build bridges between resettlement agencies and communities to ensure streamlined and effective transitions.
