Maria harbors a secret wish: she wants to be able to fly. Since opening The Skin Company in 2004, that’s exactly what’s she’s done. After working in hospitals, neonatal intensive care, and clinical education, Maria, a Registered Nurse, has forged a company that has truly taken off. And it’s all thanks to altruistic motives. Maria says, “I have the privilege of working with, as well as serving, the most amazing, powerful, kind, and beautiful women I know.” Of course, she also says that if she found $1,000 on the street and had to spend it, she’d buy a plane ticket and take off for adventure. The destination? Spain and Portugal. Olé!
