Stacey Watts

MRA President

It is my pleasure to serve as the president of the Maryland Rehabilitation Association (MRA) for 2020-2021, and to be a part of an organization that is committed to enhancing the lives of individuals with disabilities. Through collaboration with other professionals that share this same mission, we have been able to promote best practices in rehabilitation services since the 1950’s. Today, we continue that mission by providing continued education and training, developing leadership and network opportunities, and remaining active in state and national advocacy for individuals with disabilities.
