After spending years modeling, including winning Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada in 2003, Maryse was hired by WWE in August 2006, after she participated in the WWE Diva Search competition. She spent time in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE's developmental territories, before being assigned to the SmackDown brand in 2008. In December 2008, Maryse captured her first title with the company, the WWE Divas Championship. She held it for seven months, the third longest reign in the championship's history. In April 2009 she was drafted to the Raw brand, and won the Divas Championship for the second time in February 2010, making her the first wrestler to have held the championship on more than one occasion. In March 2011, she became the co-host of WWE NXT, but was released from WWE in October 2011.
In late 2011, she announced plans for a clothing and jewelry line called House of Maryse, and later began working as a realtor. Maryse married her long-time boyfriend actor and Triple Crown Champion WWE Superstar The Miz in 2014.
