As counsel with the Office, she has appeared at all levels of Court in New Brunswick, litigating in matters ranging from judicial reviews to construction disputes.

Recently, she participated as counsel for the Province of New Brunswick in the federal Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry.

Previously, Maya briefly worked as an agent for the Public Prosecution Service of Canada, and, from 2006 to 2009, was appointed Commission Counsel for the Cornwall Public Inquiry, which led her and the Commission Counsel team to investigate allegations of abuse against young people in Cornwall and to examine the response of the justice system and public institutions.

With degrees from Université de Moncton in 2002 (BSc, Honors Biochemistry) and from the University of Ottawa in 2005 (LLB, cum laude), Maya was admitted to the Law Society of Upper Canada in 2006 upon completing her articles with Ogilvy Renault in Toronto.
