Maiya is the Development and Events Coordinator at Powered by Professionals after spending the spring and summer here as an Events Management and Fundraising Intern. She recently graduated from Fordham University in May of 2019 with a BA in International Political Economy and Minors in Business Administration and Theology. During her time at Fordham, she ran for the cross country and track team, played the cello in the Fordham Orchestra, and served as the treasurer of the Ballroom Dance Club.
Before joining the PBP team, Maiya has had a variety of internships including working in the office of a U.S. Congressman, spending the summer at a reinsurance company, and interning for a New York City Council Member. She also worked for the Fordham Sport’s Information department for three years where she updated stats, created social media content, and helped keep sporting events on track. Her diverse experience has helped her to solidify her desire to work with non-profits and help them fulfill their missions and hold fun and successful events.
As the Development and Events Coordinator, Maiya works closely with other staff members to coordinate galas, run-walks, benefit concerts, and more, to help our charity clients reach and exceed their fundraising goals so they can keep changing the world. She played an integral role in planning and executing PBP’s 2019 spring and fall events where she oversaw silent auctions, food and beverage donations, and other event logistics.
