Maia Tamanakis has been with Stanford as a BeWell Coach since 2016. Before joining Stanford she was a wellness coach at Intel in Santa Clara for eight years. Prior to that she worked in the fitness industry and holds certifications in wellness coaching and personal fitness training from the American Council on Exercise and Wellcoaches®. She has worked with a diverse population in all areas of wellness and has a passion for personal transformation that inspires her role as a wellness coach.
Graduating from Boston College with a degree in psychology, philosophy and theatre arts with a pre-med focus, she has always had a fascination with human biology and behavior, neuroscience and the mind-body connection. She wanted to pursue a career that would enable her to support people holistically and preventatively in both physical and mental well-being and found coaching to be a great fit.
When she’s not coaching she can be found enjoying wildlife and nature photography, hiking, writing and chanting at church.
