Marcella Maggio
Prevention Coordinator & Storyteller

Profile | Marcella Maggio is a Prevention Coordinator for the Partnership who is passionate about her work due to her personal Survivor experience. In 2010 Marcella was introduced to the CDC’s ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Study and discovered she had no awareness that her childhood trauma contributed to adulthood drama: victim mentality, blaming others, and shaming herself. Through prevention education and support from her community, she learned how to set boundaries and be intentional with consent in relationships.

Today she connects professional studies with personal stories that elevate & motivate audiences to reach their highest potential by mentoring youth & modeling resilience as Trusted Adults.

Marcella is a trained and skilled prevention expert on the experiences of ACEs, Bullying, Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence and their impact of trauma on children and adults. Additionally, she is a member of the Partnership’s Survivor Advisory Committee and a key trainer on their Building Change Together training (an essentials of prevention training for advocates & staff); a graduate of Mid-City CAN’s (Community Advocacy Network) Resident Leadership Academy; and a member of the California Department of Public Health’s Essentials for Childhood (EfC) Initiative.
