Maggie is a proud native of the Southside of Chicago. Growing up in a city plagued by the detrimental effects of racial injustice in health and wellbeing sparked her passion for dismantling these systems. She attended the University of Wisconsin Madison for undergrad where she received a B.A. in Psychology with certificates in Global Health and Gender and Women’s Studies. Maggie is currently in her first year of a Master of Public Health program where she focuses on racial disparities in Maternal and Child Health. She has experience in pediatric research both in the lab and in clinic as well as working with families as a community outreach assistant. She hopes to become a specialized pediatric physician and continue research racial equity in Maternal and Child care practices. Maggie is very excited for the opportunity to intern with the Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness! She is looking forward to using her skills in community outreach and research to contribute to the incredible work Black women leaders have begun, particularly in the area of health and safety for Black mothers.
