Originally from Dallas, Maggie graduated from Southern Methodist University in 2007 with a B.A. in Advertising. Go Mustangs! After college, she spent time working in Corporate Sales, helping to secure sponsorships for the Texas Rangers and Dallas Stars. After working in the sports marketing world, Maggie gained valuable experience working for the largest retail services provider -- a company that specializes in interior finish-outs and remodels for large restaurants & retail chains. Maggie also comes to Explore Austin with years of experience in the cycling industry, specifically in sales, as well as product knowledge in the fly fishing world, where Maggie served as an Assistant Buyer for a local fly shop in Dallas -- both of which will come in handy on Saturday Challenges and Summer Wilderness Trips. Currently, Maggie resides in Austin, and is employed by CBRE, a commercial real estate company, specializing in brokerage services. When Maggie is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her yellow lab, “Mack,” and hiking on the Greenbelt. Her most memorable adventure to date was completing a 100 mile, “century ride,” around Lake Tahoe. There’s a reason they call it “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride!” Maggie joined the Explore Austin family not only for her love of the outdoors, but also to give back to the community in a positive way, and to enrich the lives of underserved youth by helping them discover their true passions and potential.
