Welcome! I´m Maya...
an author, innovator, and strategist.
My book, The New Global Student:
Skip the SAT, Save Thousands on Tuition, and Get a Truly International Education,
was published by
Crown (Random House) in 2009.
I've been a preschool teacher in three countries,
worked as the vice principal of a kindergarten in Beijing, and served as governess
for the family of Jack Ma in Hangzhou, China.
My playful, eyes-wide-open approach to paying attention
captured the imagination of people of all ages in over 100 countries.
As the founder of Switch Strategies,
I partner with creative women everywhere
to imagine and launch exciting change projects.
I work remotely,
dividing my time among my four daughters (and three grandchildren!)
in Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Dubai, and Sacramento.
Want to collaborate?
I´d love to hear from you!
