Pageant Coaching

After competing at the local, national, and international pageant levels for over five years, I have seen that the strongest competitors do both the inner and the outer work to achieve their personal and pageant-related goals. Together, we will create a personalized coaching system and strategy that will crown you with a confidence that will elevate your self-worth and have you feeling like a queen before you step on the stage. On a practical level you are going to learn how to answer any question that comes your way with clarity and confidence, create your own personalized style and wardrobe, learn the walks and poses that flatter your body, and develop a platform brand and year-long plan that will stand out from any other contestant. My pageant knowledge, experience, and personalized set of tools will equip you with the necessary lessons and skills to transform you from a preparing like a contestant to competing like a queen!

Crown Yourself First

When You Truly Commit to Elevating Your Confidence, You Can Win ANY Pageant!

I trust that if you are here, it is because you have some serious intentions to make a big impact in the world. I am also guessing up until this point, how challenging it may have been to not know how to do this in a practical way and through pageantry. For many years, I, too, felt it would be impossible to do things like win an international pageant and create an impact around the world.

This was until I learned how to own my worth and identity in the most unique way possible that allowed me to stand out amongst hundreds of women from around the world. This simple shift helped me win several national and international pageant titles and start an international service project that is now promoted around the world, and has helped dozens of my clients be able to do the same thing. 

Signature Crowning & Confidence 1:1 Program

The Crowning Transformation program is a 1:1 private coaching experience with a primary focus to help you build an aligned and authentic strategy to feel like the queen of your pageant even before you show up at orientation.  Over the next 4 months we will co-create a mindset and platform that leads with deep service and true impact, which will reveal a version of yourself that confidently stands out in any crowd. Whether you are looking to win a pageant at any level, or start a platform that changes the world around you for the better, this program is for you. The benefits you will receive:

1. A simple 'works every time' method to overcoming comparison so that you can truly enjoy the process of competing with other women... and immediately boost your CONFIDENCE

2. A step-by-step guide to creating and promoting a service project that you are passionate about and that uniquely stands out in its own way

3. A full-proof routine and plan that empowers you to stand confidently in who you are, what you stand for, and how you choose to show up in the world. This level of self-worth shines so bright that it is evident and unspoken in any room, or stage, you walk in!

"Through Maria's coaching, I learned so much more about myself, which allowed me to preform at Miss Canada. For instance, I learned how to concisely and effectively present myself and my answers in interviews using buzz words and a simple 3-step format. 

It was initially hard to talk about myself as this was a whole new world that I never experienced but Maria pushed me out of my comfort zone, showed me that I am capable of this. Additionally, during the pageant, she was a cheerleader, encouraging me every day. 

I truly recommend Maria to anyone and everyone, not only for pageantry but if they are lost and need guidance in living their best life. Maria will challenge you but also encourage you to see what you are truly made of and how powerful you are. She will put 100% effort into making sure you reach your goal, whatever that might be. Thank you Maria for absolutely everything, I’m confidence, motivated, determined, accomplished and happy and I would have not known that if it weren’t for your guidance. "

Confidence Coaching

How would it feel to wake up each day with an unshakeable confidence in yourself and your purpose in life that no one can ever take away from you? Imagine that you wake up each morning excited for the day ahead knowing that you are living life on your set out terms. Each day is filled with the joys, people, and opportunities that you choose surround yourself with. Rather than waiting to enjoy a vacation once a year, it starts to feel like every single day is a vacation for you. You also learn to handle the challenges and stresses in life with more ease, grace, and gratitude in this way of living. More importantly, you go to rest easy each night knowing that you are living out your highest and happiest potential possible.


I am here to guide you through this transformational journey so you can begin to wake up and start living life alive and aligned with confidence and purpose! My signature program will teach you how to do both the inner and outer work so you can start to take aligned actions towards your goals and desires. Through a variety of discovery and reflection tools and exercises, identifying positive and negative habits,  goal-setting techniques, and discovering your innate passion and purpose in life I am able to help you unlock an unshakeable confidence in you so you can experience the life you were always meant to live. It’s time for you to wake up, align with your authentic identity and purpose, and Live Life Alive!

With this program about self confidence, I learned a lot of things about myself but also basic principles about life that I didn't realize before or that I didn't want to realize. I learned how to become the leader of my life, how to respect myself and how to create my own happiness.


The challenge was to overcome my fears and to break my preconceived thoughts about different subjects. Maria is able to find our weaknesses and to make them our strengths, but I had to give her all my confidence in order to let her guide me in this experience.


When I think about this program and all the process that I went through, I think about the song Show Yourself in Frozen 2. Because I started this program thinking that I was going to learn about how to love myself more, but then I discovered who I really am and how to develop my potential. Overall, I am really grateful towards myself for doing this program, and I am grateful towards Maria for being like a big sister to me and a real supportive friend.

I share in depth about how my own self care routine came to be. You will learn the relevance of each practice and the rationale about each step and how to perform the practices daily. Want to know who else has been impacted and taught how to prioritize self care as a daily practice? Email me today!


In my 1-hour workshop participants will identify their positive and negative daily habits, learn how self-care can improve their mood and their day, reflect and determine what their own 'dream life' would look like, and learn the mindset and strategies to help that dream become a reality. Through contrast exercises, large and small group activities, and personal reflection time, participants will remain active and engaged for the duration of the workshop.
