Maggie was an early adopter of technology in Dietetics. She has been using computers in her practice for over 30 years.   In 1975 she helped to develop the first computerized nutrient data base used in this country at Case Western Reserve University.   She continues to utilize technology in her practice, using a “high tech, high touch” approach.   Maggie especially enjoys sharing her expertise with Dietetic Interns and Nutrition colleagues.

She was also the Keynote Speaker for a recent Maryland Dietetic Association Annual Meeting. Maggie has also presented programs on PKU at the First International PKU Conference in Chicago and for Massachusetts PKU meetings.

Maggie is known to her friends and colleagues as a gourmet cook, but she is equally adept at teaching her clients how to order in a restaurant or prepare quick meals in the microwave. Maggie and her husband, Steve, are avid gardeners. They compost daily, grow vegetables, a wide variety of herbs, and flowers for their table. Maggie loves to travel, kayak, cross-country ski, and snowshoe. She also enjoys walking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail or across the countryside in Europe, or using the treadmill when the weather is less than kind. She considers her knitting a form of meditation and reading as a minimum daily requirement.
