Priscilla Velasquez is a registered nurse and the owner and founder of Mayan Wave, a company she established in 2018. Priscilla began Mayan Wave by working out of her apartment in Asbury Park, N.J.
Mayan Wave curates quality, colorful, hand crafted mayan goods. She’s started with handbags, travel accessories and is expanding to home decor. She aspires to open a brick and mortar in the future but for now you can find her products online and at local markets near Asbury. All of Mayan Wave’s pieces are handmade by women weavers and Mayan Wave supports women artisans in Guatemala through fair trade. Priscilla’s mission is to give back to the less fortunate and there’s no doubt that's exactly what she’s doing.
Priscilla and I spoke about what it means to create mission driven businesses that are capable of empowering women across the globe. We also dove into fair trade practices, inspiration, and creativity. And I couldn't be more grateful to her for sharing her mission-driven business guidance with all of us.
