Family & Social Services

My name is Lisa Mariano and I am both honored and overjoyed to serve as the Tribal Social Worker for the Cahuilla Band of Indians.

Tribal Social Worker

While learning from children and families has been my primary focus, I have also benefitted from working with people who are incarcerated, with children with autism, as well as with elders receiving end of life care.

Little known fact: I am a Massage Therapist with specialized training in providing Skilled Touch for the Seriously Ill. I love learning, especially about natural medicine and nutrition, and I love Family and Community, which is why this role for Cahuilla especially feels like home to me.
