Maja made her first steps on ice when she was six years old. And she fell in love with the sport.
Ten years later she volunteered at a local ice skating rink in Serbia as a skating instructor. In her student years she joined a newly formed figure skating club in her home town (Novi Sad, Serbia).
As a skating coach she trained various groups of children and adults. Besides her training activities at the club, she also trained students of Faculty of sports and physical education as part of their Winter Sports course.
At the end of 2015 Maja moved to the Netherlands where she currently is member of the FSA coaching team.
