A Viral Quest
Maggie loves being in motion, but when she’s not, you can find her researching the body to better understand how movement can help us live and feel better. She lives in Connecticut and enjoys doing planks while seeking adventures in different parts of the world, climbing mountains, and eating chocolate. Her own “addiction” to movement sometimes goes viral—you may have seen or read about her stained glass igloo on the news, her viral swimming in Jell-O video, racing on non-Newtonian fluid, or maybe you read about her challenges hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro. If not book a talk now. Maggie’s quest is to make movement fun for everyone she meets.
