Maia has been connected to the Canadian College of Performing Arts since enrolling as a student there in 2012. After graduating from the Applied Performing Arts Diploma program in 2016, she worked with the College as an artistic contractor before joining the administrative team full-time in the fall of 2017 as a graphic designer, then executive assistant and I.T. coordinator. During that time, she also worked around Victoria as an actor, projection & sound designer, and stage manager.
While she left the staff in the summer of 2021 for a position with the provincial public service, she continues to hold the work of CHAS and the College close to her heart, and is grateful for this opportunity to continue to work to support a welcoming, inclusive, and encouraging atmosphere at CCPA.
Maia also currently serves as secretary of the Board of Directors for Impulse Theatre.
