Maxine Garcia-Reilly is a daughter of immigrants and the first in her family to be born in the USA. Born and raised in San Diego, CA, she is a passionate advocate promoting diversity and inclusion because as a first-generation Latina, she truly understands how much representation matters. She has extensive experience as an entrepreneur, as well as leading operations and supply chain teams for e-commerce companies and start-ups. Passionate about holistic health, nutrition, and the outdoors, working at Green Our Planet allows her to blend her professional experience with her personal commitment to wellness, conservation, and social advocacy. Understanding that “we don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are,” she is committed to Green Our Planet’s initiatives of educating our team of administrators, teachers, and students, so we can collectively create positive change for the planet. When not working, Maxine enjoys reading, training for her next 1/2 marathon, spending time with her husband and dogs, and traveling the world.
