Maggie grew up in the coastal city of Santa Cruz, California and attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo on a track scholarship. She excelled both on the track and in the classroom, becoming the National Collegiate Athletic Association Runner-up in the 800m race and graduating with cum laude honors and a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Business. After graduation, she was offered a three-year contract with ASICS shoes to begin a professional athletic career where she competed and won at the world-class level. After taking first-place at the Prefontaine Classic, the nation's premier track and field meet, she signed a five-year contract with New Balance shoes and went on to win the prestigious Rome Golden Gala and Monaco Super Grand Prix races. She also earned the honor of representing Team USA in the 800m at the World Championships in Berlin and South Korea. Maggie then began a high-fashion competition line of athleticwear that was featured in both sport and fashion magazines such as: ESPN, InStyle, Runner's World and New York Magazine, among others. Her drive to make a global impact took her to Kenya on a medical mission and to Morocco where she was part of a US Embassy sponsored Girl's Empowerment Sports Envoy. As one of her passions is to have a positive impact on our youth, she coaches track at Park City High School where she shares her extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of the sport to inspire young athletes to reach their greatest potential. Maggie's interest in real estate began early while working for a top producing agent in the Bay Area in the early 2000's. Her experience working in an aggressive, fast-paced industry and her enjoyment of the business stayed with her throughout her running career. She loves market research and client interaction, as the combination of knowledge and communication leads to great results and happy clients. The think out of the box mentality that created a fashion line, and experience negotiating with agents and design firms, further prepared Maggie to take on a career in real estate. She brings a fresh eye and approach that clients really appreciate. Being an athlete, Maggie is results oriented. She is tenacious, disciplined, has a championship-level focus and with steadfast dedication to her clients, she will always go the extra mile.
