She then went on to pursuing Fashion Design to earning a BA in Business Marketing, to later advancing as a Producer in the Advertising world.
Flash forward to now, this Mompreneur of two is fulfilling what was once a day dream. Currently running her event planning business in the Santa Ynez Valley with a team of creatives working with her behind the scenes & on location.
Over the past decade, she has produced commercial & lifestyle shoots in the action sports industry, & continues to execute weddings/ events from the Central Coast & beyond. She also curates styled shoots & creative collaborations with fellow mombosses, talented designers & local vendors/ businesses whenever possible.
Maria enjoys the entire experience of the planning process from the initial design meeting/ concept, to developing the event plan, managing the many moving parts, unfolding the magic and logistics behind the scenes, all the way up until the big reveal while always keeping the calm!
