Maria Lee-Driver​
President and Founder of Oria’s O’Shay

Maria Lee-Driver creates magic everywhere she goes. Her journey into the charmed world of small business began in her late teens and continues to this day. Although there have been detours along the way, they have all lead her to a place of success and inspiration.

Maria opened her first business, Re-Ons Designing Impressions Hair Salon at the young age of 19. She continued to operate the salon for the next 18 years and learned much about business and taught much about cosmetology and barbering by founding a school in the same building as her salon.


Her life-long dedication to the beauty industry and her passion for helping people has guided her to create her own line of products that are natural and safe, even for the youngest client. Maria has a strong vision and even stronger desire to provide alternative solutions to mainstream chemical product.

After many years of working with an extremely varied client base, Maria saw a need for a natural product that promoted long-term healthy, beautifully radiant skin and hair. It was while she was searching for naturals products for her children’s salon that Maria fell in love with shea butter. Creating a product for children that was natural and free of harmful chemicals became her mission. She began experimenting with different mixtures in her kitchen and ultimately created Oria’s O’Shay, a multi-use product that is sold worldwide and used by growing numbers of women, men and children.

Today, Maria is hard at work spearheading the growth of her business and developing new products and business ventures. She plans to reach a growing base of discerning consumers and by using Oria’s O’Shay as a springboard, she hopes to promote venues for children, teens and young adults to believe in themselves and reach for the sky while being radiant inside and out.

Maria’s magnetic personality has catapulted her into the public eye and she is frequently asked for interviews, to host events and make guest appearances. Maria has also stepped in the award presenter arena, public special engagements, radio, television and web based opportunities. She is currently working on a talk show called “Detours” that embodies the theme of her upcoming book of the same title, “Detours: Don’t Give Me Directions If You Don’t Know Where You’re Going”.

Maria Lee-Driver is now available for multimedia interviews, guest spots and appearances.
