Maggie is an avid outdoor adventurer and a dedicated nature enthusiast. She started leading canoeing and hiking expeditions in her teens and never stopped. While following her love of the environment through a Masters degree studying chimpanzees in Senegal and Zambia, Maggie also expanded her passion for guiding outdoors. Over the past fifteen years, she has taught dozens of workshops on snow camping, kayaking, and backpacking. She has led hiking and backpacking trips and expeditions for over 1000 "eager beavers" from Ecuador and South Africa to Arkansas and Texas, teaching skills and helping them find the right gear for their adventures. Ever a lover of water, she spent a year living on a Caribbean island leading kayaking expeditions in the crystal blue waters - a step in a different direction from her past experience as a whitewater guide. Maggie has also spent whole seasons living out of a backpack or her teardrop trailer and is always on the prowl for the next best gear to upgrade her life. When not outdoors, she's dreaming of her next adventure and cuddling with her goofy greyhound-lab mix, Madeline. Maggie also loves to run anywhere and everywhere, cycle long distances, dabble in yoga, ski all winter, and paddleboard in beautiful places!
