Maggie was raised in the outskirts of Washington D.C., in Northern Virginia. In 2009, a little over a year after graduating high school, she moved to Austin for a change of scenery. While she enjoyed her career slinging coffee at Starbucks, she knew it was not her calling. As soon as the AVEDA institute opened in Austin, Maggie knew where she was supposed to be. Maggie graduated at the top of her class, receiving the honor of Valedictorian. Not long after graduation, she found her new home at Urban Betty Salon where she studied under stylist Erin Mutschler, Bumble and Bumble Network Educator. Maggie also trained with UB’s wedding hair specialist Nina Fitzgerald, and assisted with wedding hair and makeup. Maggie hopes to expand her own career into the wedding industry.
“There is no better feeling than when a client can’t stop staring at themselves in the mirror because of the look we have created together. I believe having a positive demeanor about yourself and your look will spread into the other parts of our lives.”
