She pursued a self-directed undergraduate degree in holistic health and sustainable development, connecting organic agricultural practices, local food economies, and holistic and herbal medicine. Dr. Maggie had the opportunity to live in Scotland, at the Findhorn Foundation, a spiritual and eco-minded intentional community, experiencing firsthand what it is like to live in a community that cares for the earth in a very sustainable and natural way.

Realizing that health is the greatest gift we can give ourselves, Dr. Maggie found her calling as a naturopathic doctor. Passionate about empowering people to live a healthier and more fulfilled life, she is helping them to see how intricately connected we all are with the world we live in. The health of the human species is a reflection of the health of the earth. We must become better caretakers of our own selves in order to make this earth a truly viable and magical home.
