To deal with the lack of confidence, abundance of perfectionism, and incessant apologies she witnessed daily, Prof. Maja authored two books (“Hey Ladies, Stop Apologizing…and other career mistakes women make” and “Hey Ladies, Stop Apologizing, THE WORKBOOK”.)

Professor Maja runs a leadership organization that trains women to improve their confidence, communication, and mindset. Maja also speaks to women of all ages on topics such as: confidence, self-promotion, perfectionism, mindset, time-management, and body positivity.

Professor Maja hold a PhD in sociology from McMaster University where she also teaches. Recently, Maja was nominated for the YWCA’s 2017 Woman of Distinction Award, in the category of Education and Mentorship for her commitment to the development of young women.

Her third book dealing with perfectionism is due in 2019. Her audiobook, a best-of compilation of her two books was released on Audible and iTunes in September 2018.
