About Me

I'm Maggie. I'm a 20-something young professional in the nonprofit field.  I have a love of cities and all of the possibilities they hold. Pittsburgh has my heart.  I'm devoting my life to making it the best it can be.

Right now, I'm serving the Steel City as a participant in the Pittsburgh Urban Leadership Service Experience (PULSE). Through PULSE, I am serving as the Communications Coordinator at a community based organization in my neighborhood. I earned a degree in Communication (Public Relations option) and Sociology from Waynesburg University in Waynesburg, PA. I am a big proponent and user of social media in all its forms.

I'm a big-time music lover, and I'm always willing to listen to something new. I also love movies, though I don't always make it to the theater. Netflix, Redbox, and I are the best of friends. Another good friend of mine is the library--I can sit down with a good book and forget about anything else for the rest of the day.

My biggest hobbies, though, are baking and knitting. Don't worry, I realize that this basically makes me a grandmother. I just love making something for others...and who doesn't love a hat, or warm chocolate chip cookies?
