Meet Team ZAP: Maya McDonald

MAYAphotoboothMaya McDonald joined the Zapwater team as a Senior Social Media Manager in February to lead social media for our clients. As a self proclaimed social media junkie, Maya’s been working in social for the last 5 years with clients like Johnson & Johnson, McDonald’s, and more – and she’s excited to work with local and national brands with Zapwater! When she’s not tweeting the deets, she can be found working on her personal blog, Charmingly Styled (a Chicago based life + style blog), her creative lifestyle site Wandeleur and working with various online publications like Women’s Health, Beauty Bets and more. Whenever she gets a chance to escape her computer, you can find her wandering around new neighborhoods of Chicago with a large caramel latte in hand taking way too many Instagram photos.
