She graduated from George Mason University with a bachelor's degree in Global Affairs and French and a master's degree in public policy.  She received a juris doctorate from the University of Maryland School of Law and received a public service award from the law school.

During this time, she was involved in legal work extended from the Public Defender’s Office in New Orleans, LA to San Jose, Costa Rica at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. From canvassing neighborhoods to encouraging jury participation in Louisiana, to contributing to the international legal framework around discrimination and excessive force against Afro-descendants. 

Still, while in law school, Morales competed in the National Latina/o Law Student Association's sixth annual moot court competition.

In 2014, she was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates, as the first Latina to represent District 19 in Montgomery County, MD. Maricé received the Governor’s Award for her work combating Human Trafficking and was recognized in 2019 as one of the top 100 Most Influential Latina Leaders in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia metropolitan area. Maricé currently practices law in the greater Washington, D.C. area, in her Law Office focusing on immigration, criminal defense and personal injury law.

She currently serves on the Montgomery College Board of Trustees, and the boards for the Jewish Council on Aging and Emerge Maryland.
