Interactivity Is Key To Professional Development.
Early in her career, Maria worked in the corporate world of finance where she took massive executive projects and translated them into Excel spreadsheets and graphical representations to measure departmental performance, identify trends, and predict future values. Executives want quick and accurate results. This taught her so much about really understanding the vision being presented and turning it into the desired results.
After gaining her degree in Computer Information Systems and certification in Web Development, she went on to work in several corporate environments (Fox, Crain and Advanstar) where she built this impressive technical portfolio
My Business Is Special. Is It Unique?
Maria’s passion for her work shines bright as reflected in her title of "in-house resident expert" with the reputation of going above and beyond.
One day, while working for a media publishing company, her manager decided to give her and a co-worker the same assignment: translate a .psd file into a web page. They both published the project in their respective websites. Surprised, their manager asked: "Why do these same projects look so different." The editor said to the manager:
Because Maria does it with LOVE!
And, this is the truth and core value of all Maria’s work. Love!
