Green Burien Partnership Coordinator at Burien Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department

Maya coordinates the Green Burien Partnership, an effort to restore Burien’s urban forest through a strong, engaged community.

Maya was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and is grateful to work with the lands and communities that have always been home to her. She has a B.S. from Western Washington University where she studied Biology, Chemistry, and Spanish.
