Maria ran her first coaching session when she was 15. Then as a tutor, and now as founder of Clayful, Maria has always found joy in coaching others through everyday life stressors and challenges. This led her to start a tutoring company while getting her engineering degrees at Stanford University, to leading growth, product, and marketing at edtech leader Nearpod, and to being a part of the early team at HR-focused, a16z-backed, ChartHop. Now, she is building Clayful to be the support she wished she had had (and that would have saved her lots in therapy bills!). With Clayful, kids have access to personalized resources that improve their mental wellness, regardless of socio-economic status.
