Director of Enterprise Sales & Development

I enjoy adventuring to new places, trying new healthy foods, and learning something new that helps me think differently. Change excites me! It lights my fire. Life is an exciting journey with so much to explore and understand. Training your mind to think openly and accept what is to come next without resistance transforms your life into something beautiful.

I hold a BS in Community Health Education and a minor in Nutrition from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse. I filled an internship in Sweden, at Linnaeus University where I taught Health Education Courses and experienced how Swedish culture -or in Maya’s words beliefs- drive their thoughts of “lagom” (not too much, not too little), which drive emotions of peace, which drive physical habits of biking to work and social “fika” (coffee breaks).

Every day, my mission is to lead by example as an energetic motivator to guide people toward a better quality of life. I can’t wait to meet you!
