Maria Skotheim


Maria is currently in her fourth year at the Alberta School of Business with a major in Marketing, a minor in Human Resources, and pursuing a certificate in sustainability. Maria has always had an immense passion for women empowerment and uplifting those around her, which is what led her to the NEW conference in the first place. She is returning to the executive team after an amazing 2022 Conference where she served as the Director of PR.


This year, she is thrilled to take on the role of Vice President Public Relations on the 2023 NEW Executive Team and help to execute another successful conference, learn more about women empowerment, and create an amazing experience for delegates. Alongside NEW she is also one of this year’s VS Pink Campus Reps. In her free time, you can find Maria perfecting her Pinterest vision boards or exploring brunch spots

around Edmonton!
