Maggie created LOKi to provide accessible and engaging outdoor programming for children of all abilities. She grew up in Pennsylvania, playing in the woods behind her house and climbing the haystacks of her father's barn. After completing an undergraduate degree in Dance and Kinesiology, Maggie moved to California and completed a Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy at Samuel Merritt University.
Maggie's 16+ years of experience as a pediatric occupational therapist have allowed her to practice in a variety of settings including in-patient rehabilitation, pediatric out patient clinics, early intervention home-based services, school-based practice, and nature based settings. She has completed extensive post graduate training and specializes in early intervention services, nature based therapy, sensory integration and oculomotor/vision rehabilitation for children.
Maggie is trained in the ConTiGO Approach (Connection & Transformation in the Great Outdoors), an evidence-based framework to guide best practice in nature-based therapy with children. She is a member of the Cedarsong Way Forest School community and completed The Cedarsong Way Teacher Training for children ages 2-6. in 2022.
