Maggie is a native of Virginia and grew up outside of Washington, D.C. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a B.A. in French language and literature and a minor in drama (highlights included studying abroad in Toulouse, France and many student theater productions). Following a summer at the Williamstown Theatre Festival after graduation, she determined an internationally-focused career was her calling and spent two months in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala learning Spanish. Over the past seven years, Maggie worked for the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) with the Regional Tuberculosis, Malaria and HIV/STI programs, including serving as coordinator of the USAID-PAHO Umbrella Grant Agreement supporting technical cooperation in maternal and child health, infectious diseases and health systems strengthening in Latin America and the Caribbean. At Princeton, she plans to focus on development economics and gender policy. Outside of work and the classroom, Maggie enjoys biking, camping, yoga, volleyball, performing arts, salsa dance and trying different international cuisines with her husband, Alex.
