Maya is a performance marketing expert, direct-to-consumer aficionado, self-love enthusiast, and body-positive activist. She has a passion for loving herself out loud in hopes that anyone that reads her writing or sees her content feels comfortable and inspired to do the same. In high school, she fell in love with fashion because it was a way for her to break out of the stereotypical bubble that society tries to assign women of her size. From the gym, to the club, to the office runway, Maya is always looking for the best and boldest plus-size fashion to write about and wear. She’s always looking for ways to flex her inner Carrie Bradshaw, so when her favorite site The Everygirl opened up space for contributors, it was a no-brainer.

When she’s not writing for The Everygirl, Maya works in direct response media where she helps brands create conversion-optimized social media creative.


After interning with companies like Pandora and New Era Cap, Maya settled in Los Angeles to write, shoot, and produce for top brands’ social media campaigns in 2018. Since then, she’s moved to NYC and become a bicoastal creator, working with all kinds of brands from fashion to finance.

Fun Stuff

In her free time, you can find Maya brunching like it’s a sport, reading a book with a plus-size or Black protagonist (sometimes both at the same time), or walking around the Brooklyn Piers. She loves boba, laughing with friends, and re-watching Brown Sugar and One Tree Hill.
