Biography

Maye Musk has reached success in the past 50+ years of her life in the nutrition and modeling fields.

Maye has run her own nutrition business for over 45 years in eight cities and three countries through speaking, consulting, counseling, writing and media work. She has reached the peak in her field in three countries: the first Representative of the Consulting Dietitians of Southern Africa; President of the Consulting Dietitians of Canada; and Chair of the Nutrition Entrepreneurs, Academy of Dietetics and Nutrition. She also won the Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur Award in the USA. She was the first dietitian to be featured on a cereal box with her book, Feel Fantastic. She has been modeling since the age of 15 and had 4 billboards in Times Square in her 60s, probably a record. Maye gives presentations as an entrepreneur, fashion icon and nutrition expert to numerous corporations, associations, hospitals and universities.

She is an Ambassador for two non-profits that fit into her two careers: Big Green, building vegetable and fruit gardens in under-served schools; and Dress for Success, a global not-for-profit organization that has helped more than one million women achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, a variety of personal and professional development programs and work attire.
