About the speaker:
Maia is anything but a homebody. A thrill seeker, she organized skydiving trips at Dartmouth and kept planning weekend adventures for her friends while working as a trader on Wall St. She ultimately realized- this is my company! She built Urban Escapes to expose New Yorkers to beauty and excitement mere miles from Manhattan and brags that she's "paid to play outside."
