Maya comes from a long line of health-care professionals. Her mother is a registered pharmacist, her aunt is a pediatric nurse practitioner, and her uncle is a board-certified radiologist. Maya expressed an interest in working in healthcare early on in her education. She ultimately chose to pursue law with an emphasis in healthcare because she recognized her strengths were more equipped for the legal field and understood that her lifelong exposure to the responsibilities and needs of medical professionals gave her a distinct advantage to handle issues in health law.
