Prior to joining UPD, Maggie worked as an education policy fellow for the Mayor of Portland, where she focused on developing and managing programs related to the Cradle to Career initiative, devised to keep youth from becoming disconnected from school and work. While in graduate school, she worked with the U.S. Department of Labor to make recommendations for the structure of their workforce development and community college grant programs. She also consulted with the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Education on the effectiveness of their extended learning time grant program.
