Maggie has worked in print, radio, television and online. Coverage includes Huffington Post, USA Today, T+L, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, and the Travel Channel.
She authored two travel books. First, a pet-friendly travel guide – The Privileged Pooch, Luxury Travel With Your Pet in Southern California. The second book – On A Mission – profiled her 800-mile walk to visit California’s 21 missions. Yup, walk! Loco!
Maggie has danced with Kuna Indians on Panama’s San Blas Islands; slumbered in Japanese Ryokans; lived on St. Croix; traipsed the City of Light for six weeks with her dog; swam with nurse sharks in Belize; sat among millions of Monarch Butterflies at their wintering grounds in Michoacán, Mexico; mushed a team of Huskies in Fairbanks, Alaska; explored the Venezuelan Rain Forest; scaled Mt. Whitney; straddled the equator in Ecuador on my way to the Galapagos Islands; sampled limpet sea snails in the Azores; rode the Amtrak train across America; led group tours through Baja’s Guadalupe Valley wine country; and the list goes on.
Throughout her career she taught travel writing at Grossmont College, and was a guest lecturer with Celebrity Cruises. She thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the attendees and teaching them how to break into the travel writing industry.
