Hey there!

I’m Maria → some people know me as a The Pageant Gal as pageant and confidence coach, a personal trainer, a Registered Nurse, a public speaker, or even a freelance model. Overall I am a passionate entrepreneur with a thirst for learning and teaching holistic facets of personal development. 


When I was 21 years old, I had an epiphany about the way I was living my life. I was sleeping on the fact that I was meant to do so much more in life and that I had this undeniable potential I was not fulfilling. Through daily self-care, physical activity, and aligning myself with opportunities for personal growth and development I began to wake up from this autopilot mode I had been living in. From this moment on I began to Live Life Alive! In 2019 I launched my international speaking and coaching network to teach other women and men how they can Live Life Alive too. 


As a confidence and mindset coach, I inspire my clients to recognize their own unique strengths and gifts, to work through their limiting beliefs and negative self-talk, and set goals and steps on a path so they can create the life of their dreams. It’s time for you to wake up and start thriving with purpose!
