Meet One of Arizona's Most Influential Women
August 03, 2017
In addition, Maja co-chairs the Law and Government Relations Diversity and Inclusion Council.
A naturalized U.S citizen, Maja was born and raised in Duesseldorf, Germany and has studied and worked in Germany, France, and Japan. She has served on the board of the Arizona Women's Leadership Foundation since 2010 and is an active member of the Arizona State Council of the Humane Society of the United States.
As her best career decision, Maja notes in the magazine: “My willingness to accept risks with my career development. A few examples are when I left the partnership track at a law firm in Chicago to join a law firm in Germany, when I completed an eight-month expat assignment for GE in Tokyo, and the fact I've chosen to work in two very different, highly regulated industries in which I had no prior experience or expertise (aerospace and healthcare)," she said. "As a result, I've met great people who supported me and pushed me outside my comfort zone and I've ultimately developed skills I otherwise would not have, which has made me a better lawyer and business partner."
