Maggie received her Occupational Therapy degree from Brenau University in August 2015, and began working at About Play in October 2015. Before her masters degree, she worked as a music teacher at the Hirsch Academy (volunteer), floortime player through Floortime Atlanta, and created and led outdoor/music/art camps for children of all abilities since 2005. Maggie currently works with Outdoor Rec. Adventures as well, an outdoor therapy company that works with schools in Decatur and Atlanta to further develop and facilitate social interaction skills, gross motor, balance, and executive functioning skills.
Maggie is working on her full certification in the Haller Method (based on the work of Maxine Haller), and certified in Brain and Sensory Foundations (integration of primitive reflexes). She is trained in Reiki levels 1 & 2, and believes nutrition, herbal remedies, and supplementation support the health and well-being of her clients, and encourages clients to seek guidance and support in this area. Maggie attended the Waldorf School of Atlanta from kindergarten through 12th grade, and developed a love for the arts, outdoors, hard work, and creativity that she hopes will bring energy and dedication to the Occupational Therapy profession. In her free time, Maggie enjoys crafting, gardening, cooking, hiking, yoga, and playing Appalachian and Old Time music.
