It was not until late in high school that Maria turned her attention from dancing to acting. Upon graduating from the University of Windsor with a BFA in Acting, Maria immediately signed with an agent in Toronto and started starring in theatre productions across Canada. In 2012 Maria moved her focus from stage to screen. In a short time Maria has done quite a bit of work guest starring in various TV series, and starring in short films, web series, and feature films.
