Maria Maldonado Smith
Chief Empowerment Officer
MMS Consulting Firm

I am the Chief Empowerment Officer of MMS Consulting Firm and creator of the Executive Vision Imagery program. After 18 years of award-winning success in the corporate space, working as a sales leader for Fortune 500 companies across three different industries, I bring an unparalleled combination of experience to my proprietary process and interactive training, helping companies understand the neuroscience and benefits of goal-setting for their employees. I equip leaders, employees and organizations to clearly define goals and create a roadmap to achieving them, which allows for better alignment with corporate culture, leading to increased productivity and profitability. I have served numerous national and international clients, including US House of Representatives, Johnson & Johnson, Disney and Paramount Studios. Growing up as the daughter of an immigrant parent, goal-setting has always been a way of life for me. At age 9, I set goals to become the first college graduate in my family and to earn the title of Miss Kentucky. I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Political Science, won the title of Miss Kentucky and competed in Miss America in 2005. My proprietary process has been an essential practice in achieving these goals and many more throughout my career and personal life. I have performed twice at Carnegie Hall and sang the National Anthem for an audience of over 120,000. Me and my husband of 18.5 years are raising our three children in a loving and encouraging environment where anything is possible when you set a goal and create a vision for it.
