Maria D'Rozario

Client Care Specialist

Early Years: Arts and culture.

Born in Bangladesh, Maria explored South Asian culture while growing up in the U.S. When she was young, she learned to play the harmonium - a smaller-sized organ used in folk and devotional music. She also took Bollywood and modern dance in high school and college.

What we know about Maria: Home sweet home.

Maria studied business and management at the University of Maryland, but she still knows how to relax. When she's not working with our team at EBS, we know we'll find Maria at home cooking, sipping a glass of wine and watching a Disney movie with her family and her cuddly Havanese dog.

Fun Facts

Seeing double: I have a twin sister who is 30 minutes older than me. People would always get us confused at school and work, saying, "I just saw you in the other room!"

Trilingual: I understand and speak Bengali, Hindi and English.

Adventure time! I love traveling and trying food from different countries. The best place I've been is Italy, and it's my goal to travel to Dubai and the Maldives.

Hope Walker

Client Manager

Early Years: Light up the Stage!

Growing up in Hampden in northern Baltimore, Hope's stage presence became obvious at a young age. She sang with her church choir, school choirs, and in school musicals. She even took home the $50 grand prize during a middle school talent show! Her courage to perform for large audiences drove her to audition and win acceptance into the All-County and All-State Choirs, and she even performed at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. No stage fright here! 

What we know about Hope: 

Hiking her way to EBS

In the summer, we most often find Hope with her Chocolate Lab fur-baby, Kona, playing at the dog park, hiking mountain trails, or swimming at the beach. Hope says, "I am a summer girl, so you'll find me outside in the warm sun, any chance I get." She certainly loves to enjoy the outdoors, but now that she has hiked her way to EBS, Hope's a ray of sunshine for our team as well!

Fun Facts

Hitting it outta the park: I performed at Oriole Park while singing the National Anthem with the Perry Hall High School Chamber Choir. 

This one time, at band camp? I was the Pom Captain for my high school marching band's pom squad, and during practice I was attacked by wild geese. 

Rap it out: I can rap every word to Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back."

The Mad Food Scientist: I will eat soup and crabs all year round - soup even in 100-degree weather, and crabs for Christmas. I also like odd food mixtures such as burnt popcorn and ketchup. (No judgement until you try it!)

Keara Cleary

HRIS Project Manager

The Early Years: Note to Self

Keara is quick to catch on. Raised in Annapolis since age 2, she learned her first valuable life lesson in first grade - and it stuck. "My discipline card was flipped from green (good) to yellow (bad) for passing notes," she explains. "That's when I learned how not to get caught." She never got in trouble at school again.

Her quick reflexes and stealthy athleticism also paid off playing a little lacrosse and soccer year-round. While in high school at St. Mary's, she played volleyball. She also "did a lot of theater - always behind the scenes." Chop, chop, and Keara was off to East Carolina University, where she continued to play soccer, softball, and party- all recreationally. She also earned a greenbelt in Isshinryu karate (watch your step!) - all while graduating in three years with a BS in Communications.

What We Know About Keara: Behind the Talent

Keara's original plan was to work in video production, and she worked as summer intern in the Talent Casting and Voice Over department at Discovery Communications. "It was an amazing opportunity, but after experiencing the corporate world of TV and video production, I realized that it wasn't for me," she says. "Although I enjoy volunteering on smaller local films in my free time." Frankly, we find the fact that Keara has any free time amazing. While working with EBS full-time, she also works part-time as a licensed realtor.

Fun Facts

Bright Lights. I have a credit on IMDB, the film site. Probably the smallest profiles on that site, but it still counts.

Dive Deep. I have my scuba certification and try to go diving at least once a year. My bucket list includes diving with sharks, but finding a dive buddy to go with me isn't easy!

"Spare" Time. I took a bowling class in college. I'm pretty sure I only passed because the teacher felt bad, so please don't ask me to join your bowling league.

Google It. Google my name. I'm either the most famous Keara Cleary or the only one.

A Triple Threat

While growing up in Howard County, Maryland, with her parents and two younger brothers, Alexa attended the Institute of Notre Dame in Baltimore City.

She even joined a competitive jump rope team - as if she was not busy enough!

The Campus Tour Guide

She started off at Frostburg University, then transferred to Salisbury University where she met her husband, before ultimately graduating from UMBC with a degree in Sociology.

Work that Side Hustle! When I am not working with the team EBS, I am an assistant Wedding Planner with Social Graces Events

Gourmet Cupcakes Anyone? I love to bake and consider myself a cupcake connoisseur! I have visited over 50 cupcake shops with my mom, and we are still eager for more.

Believe in Serendipity: Right before a trip to North Carolina for a family vacation, my flight was abruptly cancelled. In the airport, I met a woman scheduled to take the same flight to embark on her own family vacation. We ended up driving from the airport to North Carolina together that same night, and we remain friends to this day.
