At the Universidad de San Andrés, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Maria earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. It was a degree she put to work immediately, spending ten years in the communications world working at both for- and not-for-profit organizations. Today, Maria integrates the skills she honed the communications world, and the passion she has for the design world, as Assistant Designer for LeeAnn Baker Interiors. Maria’s been living in the Seattle area for five years, and in her off-time she’s usually found in her back yard, enjoying good times (and good weather!) with her husband and daughter.
