Maribel Rueda, BioBridges Team Member, Honored During Hispanic Heritage Month

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - October 30, 2015) - BioBridges, a career portfolio management company providing integrated services to the emerging life sciences community, proudly announces the recognition of team member Maribel Rueda by the Boston Renaissance Charter Public School during its Hispanic Heritage Month breakfast on October 26, 2015.

Rueda was honored as an inspirational and influential member of the Hispanic community. As the mother of three with an autistic son, she noticed the dearth of autism education and outreach within the Latino community. She volunteered as the Latino Media Chair for Autism Speaks, and is now the president and founder of Autism Geniuses of the World.

“I’m thrilled that Maribel is being honored,” said Jeff Souza, Chief Executive Officer and Partner, BioBridges. “Autism has impacted my own family, so her work really hits home on a personal level. As an advocate, Maribel brings focus, determination, and experience to shine a light on autism within the Latino community. We value and foster those qualities in our BioBridges consultants. We are heartened to see Maribel use her talent to help the autism community, as well as the life science community we serve.”

“Maribel has been part of the BioBridges team for several years, contributing to multiple programs,” said Jesse Nandhavan, BioBridges Director, Career Management. “Her great work ethic, approachability, and commitment make her a highly successful, sought after expert in the life science space. We look forward to a long partnership.”

“I was thrilled to participate in this event, raising awareness around autism in the Latino community," said Rueda. “As a life science professional, I’ve seen the immediate impact of early intervention with key therapies. That early diagnosis is often missed within the Latino community, where recognition of autism is less likely. I am determined to change that dynamic.”
