Sparkly Reviews...

"I have seen Maria present multiple times on different topics, and to a variety of audiences. Maria is an enthusiastic speaker who brings her authentic self to every presentation. This authenticity helps the audience feel engaged and open. Maria disarms you with humor and her signature story-telling style, and works to connect to her audience. I would high recommend her to anyone seeking a fresh voice and perspective. I have always left her presentations uplifted and inspired."  ~Cindy Dalton, Public Relations Specialist, LUK, Inc.
Maria’s passion about life’s purpose is beyond imagination. Maria not only connects with people, she empowers them. Here is what some of the young people said about Maria’s recent speaking event:
”She affected me a lot and I changed my mindset.”
”Maria was real. She opened my eyes with her story and encouragement.”
”I say show this presentation to the whole school. This would help out many people in this school.

Whether you are part of a professional office or educational setting, support group, or faith organization, Maria Vazquez’s multi-talents will mold wellness topics to meet the needs of any audience. There are many motivational speakers to pick from, but many use the same theme repeatedly, merely tweaking the same topic slightly to satisfy an audience. On the contrary, Maria’s wellness topics are well thought out, tailored to the audience, and will be developed only after researching the audience’s specific needs and expectations.
