Maria Ortega has a passion for accounting and helping businesses and individuals manage and grow their financial well-being. She has been with Fred Astaire Dance Studios for 3 years. She is Office Manager for the Ahwatukee dance studio in Phoenix, Arizona. Maria decided the best way to understand dance was to experience what the students undergo daily. She has been dancing on and off since March of 2019. Maria entered her first-ever dance competition in August 2019. The experience was incredible and provided her with a new perspective regarding dance. Mixing her new love of dance with her passion for accounting has proven to be a winning combination.
