Maday Bonet was born in Cuba and migrated to the United States with her parents and siblings at the age of four. She was raised in Miami, Florida and has one son. Her passion for children began at an early age. She was involved with HandsOn Miami, where she volunteered her time reading to children who were underprivileged and in foster care. The trauma the children experienced and shared with her gave her the passion to advocate. Life experiences reinforced her passion to continue an active role in helping other children and families.
As Office Manager of the Department of Psychology at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, she has had the opportunity to advocate for children and their families. Her growth within the department has led to leadership roles, which keeps her driven and focused on mental health advocacy, the importance of community engagement, and the wellbeing of all children.
Maday aspires to utilize her experience in leadership, strategy, professional development, and community engagement in her role as Chair of the Board of Trustees at Parent to Parent of Miami. She is also an active volunteer at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and other local non-profit organizations.
