Meet Maya

BBP Founder, CEO

“You CAN bounce back, and you can do it beautifully.”

Maya is an author, creative thought leader and entrepreneur renowned for her self-made #NextYou strategy, which takes a refreshingly relatable and logical approach to putting one’s life back together to create a “life you can actually LOVE, after loss.”

What sets Maya apart is her creative approach to supporting women in a niche that most people are unaware of – widowhood LIFE.  She provides experience with and access to the “little known” yet crucial information needed for widows to create, curate, and financially support a new, independent, stable life after loss. Unlike other grief and loss coaches in this space, Maya has a step by step process that you can see, touch and implement – and in her clients as well as in her own life, she proves daily that it WORKS.

To date, Maya has been a beacon to thousands of widowed moms across the globe and has been featured in lifestyle and mental health podcasts, coaching interviews, TV spots. She is currently speaking on a National level for widows at the world renowned Camp Widow 2021 in both San Francisco, CA and in Toronto, Canada. 

She lives happily with her 3 children and life partner in Southern Maryland.

Meet Aryssa

‘Ryss is the right hand of the creator. Ok, not that Creator – but close enough!!! A writer, author, “widowpreneur” and content curator – Aryssa's talents are exactly what helps run the engine at BBP. From posting schedules to booking clients, Aryssa works hard to ensure stellar customer service and individual attention for our clients and potential clients.

Aryssa represents the widowed under 35 crowd, and holds it down (and reports all the “tea” to us!) in the dating after widowhood realm. 🙂 Seemingly introverted and reserved, she's is still a force to be reckoned with, and always has an amazing perspective or nugget of wisdom to share. 

Aryssa lives in Germantown MD, with her 3 yorkie pups.
