Maria has had a successful career in the health care industry, starting out as Pharmacist working in the Intensive Care Unit one of the largest trauma hospitals in New York City in 1986, then moving into home health care administration and sales by 1990. She has consulted for some of the top pharmaceutical firms in the country (Johnson & Johnson, MD Harris Labs) and has negotiated multi-million dollar health care provider contracts. In 1994 she co-authored Pharmacy Statutes which were adopted by the state of Arizona and addressed important patient quality care issues.
In 1998 she challenged to herself was to leave the health care industry, retire her professional degrees, and completely re-invent herself using all the talents and skills that brought her the most joy and applying them to new industries.
She learned how to continually surround herself with the right people, how to fund any project she was working on, and how to skillfully leverage and capitalize on her ideas and talents.
