WHO WE SERVE

In 21st century education, everyone has to learn to be a meaning-maker.

Teachers

Making connections is central to a teacher's role. But too often, there is not enough space to plan and collaborate. I create the space for productive risk-taking and organic collaborations that result in more holistic learning experiences.

Policymakers

Decisions about what must be learned are challenging to make in a vacuum, and it's tempting to rely on "the way it's always been done". I inject a healthy dose of fresh perspective and asking challenging questions, helping to push curriculum to be more meaningful.

Students

Expanding the different motivating factors by making connections to other content, to concepts, to competencies, to careers, etc., students can learn to find meaning in their assignments.

Start-Ups

EdTech is a booming field. I advise entrepreneurs on strategy within the education system as well as strategy on the design of experiences for learning.

Publishers

I help curriculum designers create learning experiences that not only address the standards but make them relevant, address students holistically, and leave room for teacher creativity.

Researchers

Brilliant discoveries are made in classrooms and laboratories every day, and yet the communication channels between the two are strained. I advise researchers on promising educational interventions and on the constraints of the classroom.

Since earning my M.Ed. in Mind, Brain, & Education from Harvard in 2012, I have been collaborating with educational organizations around the world to make their work more meaningful. I love bringing to bear my academic background in the learning sciences as well as my improv background as a performer, coach, director, and teacher —  to help groups think critically about current patterns and creatively about what's possible. That can mean anything from embedding competencies to re-thinking the role of a discipline in the curriculum, learning through play, designing for intrinsic motivation, or coming up with creative ways to collect evidence of learning.

Maya has a unique ability to doggedly "ask why 5 times", to get to root causes. Then, once root causes are identified, she will creatively work at devising answers. Her wide-ranging education in the learning, social and biological sciences, coupled with an incisive intellect, are powerful tools to spot analogies and differences, gaps and overlaps, while exploring possibilities and honing in on solutions.

I first met Maya when she facilitated a professional development workshop that changed the trajectory of my career. On teams under her leadership in the three years since, I have engaged in some of the most intellectually challenging and rewarding work I’ve ever completed. Maya elevates the performance of those she works with by asking critical and probing questions while generating a contagious enthusiasm and energy for the work. Put simply, when Maya sets her mind to something, she will accomplish it. Remarkably, she also possesses a joyful disposition, love of life, sense of humor, and general positivity in a way I rarely see with people of her academic rigor.

Maya's experiences give her fresh perspectives, which she readily uses to deepen discussions. She skillfully listens and naturally organizes any large set of ideas into elegant and usable frameworks, drawing connections and clarifying the core of the conversation. No matter the content, she is a joy to work with and immediately became indispensable to our team.
