Maggie is a passionate advocate for Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, especially in the outdoors. Having grown up in rural Massachusetts, being outside was integral to her childhood. She often spent time with her mixed Filipino American family walking through the woods, visiting local swimming holes and picking wild berries. After her first year of college, she took a summer job on a trail crew in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. From this experience grew a great love for being outside and
connecting with nature, as well as a 6-year career in trails. Maggie is committed to breaking down barriers to the outside spaces and supporting others in cultivating their own relationship with nature. She is excited to support all of the BCM programming that aims to do just this.
Maggie is a graduate of Brandeis University with degrees in Environmental Studies and Public Health and continues to make connections between health, wellness, and access to the outdoors. She is involved in several local groups that are working to improve representation of people of color in climbing, hiking and other outdoor sports, such as hiking, climbing, and trail running. She loves to find rest through reading, yoga, and making art.
