CAP Director, Marla Friedman
The Maryland Client Assistance Program welcomes Jhoselin Beltran Contreras!
I’m Jhoselin Beltran Contreras, the new Staff Specialist II for the Maryland Client Assistance Program.
I was born and raised in Washington, D.C., by my Salvadoran immigrant parents, and moved to Baltimore this fall. I obtained my BS in Family Science from the University of Maryland and my MA in Educational Transformation from Georgetown University.
Prior to joining CAP, I served as the Assistant Ombudsman for Special Education in D.C. In this capacity, I worked to ensure that families understood their educational rights, fostered effective communication between schools and families, and provided support to D.C.’s most vulnerable students. Additionally, I served as a classroom aide and Dual Language teacher in D.C. Public Schools. In my off time, I enjoy volunteering and cooking.
I am most passionate about finding solutions, helping and empowering individuals, and creating a meaningful impact. I eagerly anticipate this new chapter and opportunity to serve the wonderful state of Maryland.
