Maggie came to Outward Bound first as a participant. She then became one of the first female instructors in the Outward Bound system, working at both the North Carolina and Colorado Outward Bound schools. An accomplished mountaineer she has participated in many expeditions around the world.
Maggie has had a long, distinguished career serving others. And like many of us who began their careers working for Outward Bound, it is those days that she reflects most upon.
"Being an (Outward Bound) instructor was the biggest gift of my life," said Maggie in Outward Bound Lessons To Live A Life of Leadership. "How magical is it to watch people kind of fall in love with themselves, to learn, 'I'm a good person. I can do this.' That sense of wonder about yourself is so rare. Having the experience of watching people unfold into their own beauty and power. They rise. Like a fish to a lure, they rise."
