Hi, hello, what’s up! I’m Maggie, an avid writer, gardener, feminist, and explorer of both inner and outer worlds. I’m from all over the place, growing up as a child in New Jersey, England, California, and Illinois, and finding myself as a young adult in Colorado and Hawaii, before calling Antigua, Guatemala home. I received my formal education from the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado, graduating with a BA in Psychology and a Minor in Spanish and am a Masters in Social Work candidate from the same school. Everything else I have learnt from plants and traveling.
I am passionate about trauma studies and the interplay between individuals, communities, and systems and the art of reaching our potential. I am inspired by people and places, but most of all, the stories they hold. I believe we are our impact in the world, but moreover, we are transformed by who and what we impact. In 2018, I had the opportunity to live, work, play, volunteer, and travel through Colombia and Central America where I learned so much about myself and the world. I joined Go Travel and Talk as to help create a community-based and social-impact driven travel platform. For these reasons, I am so excited to be able to combine my passions and beliefs and be a part of Go Travel and Talk to continue to explore and share with as many people as possible!
