About Maya

Maya Acosta is a health and wellness educator, podcaster, and content creator from Dallas, Texas. She advocates for whole-food, plant-based living and co-leads the Plant Based DFW Pod, where she educates the public on the benefits of healthy living through lectures, potlucks, and walks with the doc. Maya’s interest in health outreach was sparked by witnessing the effects of poor lifestyle choices among her husband’s patients, which led her to promote nutrition education and lifestyle medicine.
