Deputy Director, Capacity Building
"I am committed to social justice work because I want to live in a world where individuals do not feel limited or alienated because of their citizenship, economic status, gender, sexuality or ethnicity/race. I want to do my part to leave this world better than I found it."
As Deputy Director for Capacity Building, Maggie supports Liberty Hill’s leadership development and capacity building work. Maggie has spent over eight years working in the nonprofit and education sectors, serving across the education spectrum from elementary school to university settings.
