Maria Peeva was born on August 8, 1954 in the town of Shumen, Bulgaria. She graduated from Sofia Polytechnic in 1977 and was assigned to work at the Design Organization in the town of Schumen, where she led the design section from 1980-1989. Peeva was named Chief Architect of the Boloslav Region (1988-2000) and Regional Architect of the Black Sea tourist region (2000-2006).
