Maria started at Premier Christian Radio in 2004, editing ministry programmes whilst completing her MA in Theology. She quickly joined the on-air team, co-presenting Inspirational Breakfast, before being let loose with her own programme, Woman to Woman. Maria set up the associated Woman to Woman conferences in 2008, which currently over 10,000 women have attended around the country! She loves reporting on breaking news stories so has enjoyed broadcasting on location around the world, from Australia, France, Finland, Germany and Italy.
When not on air, Maria can be found speaking at events throughout the UK. She is an active user of social media so launched the annual Christian New Media Awards (now into their 8th year) to encourage those using the digital space as an arena for evangelism and discipleship; the Christian New Media Conference then followed as an equipping tool for the Church. Her passions include Church unity, human rights issues (being a voice for the voiceless) and seeing the Church be fully open to the miraculous.
