In addition to extensive work with international students at Yale, Maya's experience in higher education includes managing employer relationships, advising undergraduate and graduate students on their career development goals and strategies, and serving as Acting Director of Fine Arts Career Services at the University of Texas at Austin.
At YSE, Maya supports general CPD operations, manages recruitment activity on and off-campus, and coordinates and develops summer experience opportunities and funding. A native of New Haven, Maya’s appetite for travel sent her across the country and around the world. She spent a decade living and working in California, Oregon, Bali, and Texas.
