Education lights my fire. It allows me to take new knowledge, apply it, and witness its effect right away. 

Applied Research

I'm a natural problem solver. The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree seemed the perfect fit for me because it's an applied doctorate, geared towards solving business problems.

Maya was a wonderful addition to the Institutional Advancement Team and assisted Development immensely. She is an expert in social media and was instrumental in launching our fund raising challenge online and implementing donation texting. Our website has also vastly improved due to Maya's input. Maya provided outstanding customer service to her clients (Development) and we really enjoyed working with her.

Peggy Martin

Director of Development, Nazareth University

Maya and I worked together on professional projects where I saw first-hand her incredible competency in marketing and strategic communications. Maya exemplifies strong leadership skills including but not limited to passionate innovation and keen self-awareness. She is my go-to colleague when peer-to-peer conversations are necessary to explore new avenues in communication practices in higher education.

Maya is very insightful and is able to break down complex tasks into a step by step process while maintaining the large strategy in mind. I truly enjoyed working with her and hope one day our paths cross again.

When I first started working with Maya almost two years ago, I was immediately impressed with her 'get it done' attitude. She does a terrific job of gathering the necessary information, recommending a strategy/plan and executing flawlessly against it.
