Maxine was born in Kingston, Jamaica, but grew up a shy girl in Manchester, Jamaican. Her shyness prevented her from maximizing the few opportunities that she had to display her talent. She was adamant about overcoming that shyness and becoming more confident in herself and in performing on stage. After years of being forced to speak in public due to her Army career, she continued to pushing herself to overcome that fear. She has decided that it's important for women and girls to be able to share their stories and lead confidently and push through fear, a topic she speaks on frequently. She created the “Ignite Your Confidence Brunch" where women and teens are provided a space to share their stories and talents in the Arts. She is also the founder of the "Florida Women Veterans Awards" powered by With Courage & Grace® LLC for women of the military community and women in business, which make its debut in 2021.
She also resumed her “Happily Joint® Weekend” getaway for couples in May 2021, alongside her husband, Ken. A dynamic presenter and energetic speaker, Maxine knows how to connect with her audience. Her appearances on local and national television and networks like FOX, NBC, and ABC have solidified her as a trusted resource partner and leader.
