Maya is a 3rd year Medical Student at NYU Grossman School of Medicine in New York City. She has a BS from Indiana University in Nutrition Science with a minor in Chemistry and an MS in Human Nutrition from Columbia University.
Maya serendipitously met GHGP Co-Founder Elise Joy during her junior year at Indiana University. Elise mentored Maya on how to organize, pitch, and execute the task of collecting menstrual products and donating to local shelters and community centers as a project that ran across all 23 Panhellenic chapters at IU. She was GHGP’s first official Ambassador.
Throughout medical school, Maya has developed a strong surgical interest. This allows her to consider quite a handful of future specialties, including but not limited to General Surgery, Plastic Surgery, and Obstetrics and Gynecology (yay for women’s health!)
When Maya is outside of the hospital, she enjoys cooking and baking in her miniature NYC apartment kitchen, going out to brunch and high tea with friends on the weekend, attending Barre classes, and spending time with her “COVID-puppy,” T! Paint-by-number is another major hobby, and her artworks are the centerpiece of her home.
