With a demonstrated commitment to social justice and equity Maggie believes deeply in making a positive social impact. Her interests lie in a broad range of issues from food justice, to immigrant rights, and women’s empowerment. For the past 7 years Maggie put her energy towards the field of affordable housing, most recently serving as the Portfolio Manager for .BRIDGE Housing, a non-profit housing developer and property management company. She ensured the internal processes for tenant selection were fair and efficient. She helped scale the department and operational systems as the organization grew to manage 80 affordable housing communities and spread from California to the Pacific Northwest.
Originally from the East Coast, Maggie moved to San Francisco after attending Bard College,. In California she accepted the personal challenge to create a stable community in an often-transient environment and the professional challenge to work as part of the solution to a complicated problem in a place where politics around the current housing crisis, gentrification, and homelessness are at a pique.
Maggie has participated in city and state wide collaborative projects including public/private partnerships, efforts to create a centralized housing application process in San Francisco, and coordinated entry systems for services and supportive housing units.
Maggie received her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Studies and Human Rights from Bard College
