Better Jobs With Companies That Care

It's Katharine Z, the Cofounder of PowerToFly. I thought I was terrible at Excel. I thought I was terrible at public speaking. I thought I wasn't great at a lot of things... and then I found the right women at PowerToFly to teach me what I'd blocked out over the years. We've assembled a crew of them for our VIP program to show you everything from how to build prototypes, speak publicly, pivot into a tech career later in life, master Excel and more. I'm also teaching a course that shares exactly how I've placed my stories in The New York Times, Fortune, Elle and beyond. Access all the course and a lot more by becoming a PowerToFly VIP here.

Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
