Inaugural hike: "I have been living in Vienna, VA for 2 1/2 yrs. & have yet to experience the true beauty of this area until now.  Ordinarily I'd be meeting with potential clients but I found myself free and I decided to meet up w/ friends at the Billy Goat Trail in Great Falls.  I have never really hiked before so I didn't know what to expect.  I met great people, saw beautiful scenery, and learned that I really like hiking which fits really well into my dynamic wellness lifesyle."

Learning something new: "There are so many ways to take control of your health and happiness."  Mayda found that skin care is often overlooked so she followed her passion and started a new company The Mayda Touch.

Her philosophy: "Happiness comes from within.  Smiles are contagious.  Say YES to positive energy."
