Meet Our Team

Maria

CEO/Founder

I'm the owner and founder of Nokbox and I live in Littleton Colorado.  I started the Nokbox in my garage with the help of friends and family, and the team we have now is still an incredible group of friends and family!  After three years of getting the company off the ground, I now manage the day to day operations as well as assist all of our teams in the work that they do.  While running a company tends to be all-encompassing, I love spending time with my teenager,  traveling, hiking around with our cockapoo, and being at the beach in my home state of New Jersey..

I love helping individuals complete their Nokboxes!! And that is my main role at the Nokbox.

At the Nokbox, I oversee the Facebook group, the Nokbox Nook; I offer 1:1 coaching to individuals and families who are looking for extra assistance as they create goals and action plans for their Nokbox; and I provide group classes to help customers get started on their Nokboxes. It’s so fun to meet and interact with Nokbox customers! In addition, I connect with charitable organizations who are looking to partner with the Nokbox to help enhance their fundraising efforts.
