Her extensive knowledge in the beauty and health industry, as well as her artistic ability, have led her to successfully establish Holo Academy – a training provider attracting students Australia-wide and abroad who want to become proficient in the specialised practice of aesthetic art.

Maya was a member of the Cosmetic Tattooing Technical Advisory Committee ( TAC) representing Holo Academy for the new endorsement of the new Cosmetic Tattooing Qualification and units of competency (SHB50321 - Diploma of Cosmetic Tattooing).

Training package products proposed for endorsement reflected the skills needs of the Australian tattooing industry, addressed identified skill gaps and allowed for outcomes that meet specific workforce needs and clearer career pathways.

Proposed training package products were developed in a manner to promote quality assessment practices and training outcomes that promoted skills portability across industry sector.
