Although her job roles varied, she always brought her love for event planning and people into each of these work places. It was during her time at Goldman Sachs that triggered the idea of a company that would serve as a social, personal, and business networking gateway for like-minded and busy professionals. Maria found herself planning solo vacations and individual weekend plans for her amazing co-workers that were simply too busy to sustain any form of a consistent social life. No one should have to vacation alone! Life is too short to work hard in order to have fun and meet someone. After leaving the world of corporate America to focus on her family and next business idea, Maria soon came to the realization that what society really lacked was in fact a screen-free and pain-free social and business networking solution and BAM - Eventsy was born!
