After graduating from Grand Valley in May 2010 with a major in political science and minors in criminal justice and history, Maro attended law school at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. While in law school, she was a member and title editor of the University of Detroit Mercy Law Review, and she interned with the Third Judicial Circuit Court in Wayne County. Maro also clerked with the Michigan Department of Attorney General in the Criminal Division, working on cases in election fraud, human trafficking, homicide, cold case sexual assault, tax fraud and continuing criminal enterprises cases. She was admitted to the State Bar of Michigan in November 2013. 

After working for a few years as an assistant prosecuting attorney for Wayne County, Houhanisin joined Hewson & Van Hellemont, P.C., where she became Partner in December 2020.

About her time at GVSU, Maro says, “I am truly thankful for my education from Grand Valley, as it vastly prepared me for the challenges I came across in both life, and in law school. The programs I took during undergrad fully prepared me for the challenges law school presented.”
