Did you know?
During college, Maggie spent a semester studying food & food-related media in Rome, Italy. It was a great way to get in touch with her Italian roots, while indulging in daily doses of pizza and gelato!
During that 2.5 year stint, Maggie covered all kinds of stories. Her favorites included the ongoing debate over residents’ rights to carry concealed weapons in Illinois, the only state without such legislation. She also took trapeze lessons from the high-flying performers at “Cirque Du Soleil”, and covered historic visits from the presidential campaigns of then-candidates Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney.
Maggie is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Go Illini!), where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism. While in school, she worked at the Daily Illini, U of I’s college of Media, and the Big Ten Network.
In her spare time, Maggie loves running, hiking, Italian cooking, and spending time with friends and family. She’s excited to call sunny Tucson home and is looking forward to exploring the southwest, with plenty of sunscreen.
