“Maria is an excellent communicator whose passion for her work is contagious. The audience was captivated with her explanation of how she left her lucrative corporate career and put it all on the line in pursuit of the American Dream. Maria stood out among the panelists not only for her passion—but also because of her ability as a speaker—even when addressing an audience she seemed to be speaking to each person individually.

“Maria far surpassed any expectations I had. She talked us through her obstacles, her triumphs, her failures and her successes. She told us a story—her story—about how rushing is not the an-swer, but finding yourself and your personal satisfaction is the true key to success. . She was eloquent, genuine, and hilarious, a dynamic threesome that does not usually come in one package.
