Maria started her career as a lawyer in the early nineties at a D.C. international law firm. She worked on a clunky WANG computer that was far from “user-friendly”. Having ridden the technology wave (both good and bad), Maria understands how the right technology can be used to create value and grow your business. Maria practiced as a partner in a law firm representing multinational corporations, an Assistant United States Attorney and an Assistant Attorney General. She was also an elected Arizona lawmaker. Maria holds a Master’s degree from Harvard, a law degree from American University and a bachelor’s degree from Smith College. She is a member of the Arizona, California, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and D.C. bars.
