Maggie is a believer in the power of community and holds firmly that we are stronger when we come together and rely on each other.
Around the age of nine, Maggie came to know many justice-impacted women. Over lasagna and magic tricks, a seed was planted, and her commitment to criminal justice reform and her sense of our shared humanity took root. Those friendships with the women in re-entry were foundational to her worldview and her belief in the power of transformation. This led Maggie to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a minor in Political Science from California Polytechnic State University and undergo intervention and crisis counseling training.
Today, she applies her passion as she makes connections and shares opportunities, education, and access through programming.
