Mariah Allen Moore
Mariah considers it a special honor to direct the Family, Health, and Wellness department at Tabor. She aims to help our youth and families connect with services which strengthen and grow their life skills. She also strives to assist agency staff with professional development in areas such as health care system navigation, trauma-informed care, and evidence-based interventions in child welfare.
The passion Mariah holds for working with children and families comes from living within the foster care system herself from age 0-21. Relentless networking, connection to community resources, and a commitment to learning has helped Mariah to reach a place of stability and independence, and to share knowledge learned along the way with others.
In 2016, Mariah became a Certified Application Counselor (CAC) and volunteered with Shepherd's Clinic in Baltimore, where she helped patients without insurance apply for medical assistance. This volunteer experience then led to employment as a patient financial counselor at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she helped under-resourced patients navigate our ever-changing health care system for three years. Some other roles Mariah has held, which help in her position today, are home health care coordinator, pharmacy technician, food policy intern, and health and wellness program manager.
Mariah received her B.S. in Public Health at California Baptist University and her M.P.H. in Public Health Practice and Policy at University of Maryland-College Park. Mariah is a member of the Society of Public Health Education (SOPHE) and is a CHES® (certified health education specialist). Finally, Mariah is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) candidate currently studying at Florida Institute of Technology.
