Maggie is an Assistant Manager at the FedEx Office located in Woodbury, MN. She grew up in Hudson, Wisconsin, and enjoys the mix of city and country living. Maggie now lives just outside of Hudson with her husband, young son, and two crazy cats. She loves laughing and making others laugh, and is excited to watch a really good comedy. It makes her feel proud to complete a crafty project like a scrapbook of her son or a homemade birthday card. In the winter, while most others in Wisconsin are inside wondering why they chose to live in this state, Maggie is outside skiing or taking her son sledding or tubing. A quote she tries to live by is "Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending."
