Maggie joined Aspen Country Day School in the fall of 2020, bringing 12 years of experience as an emergency room nurse at Valley View Hospital and Aspen Valley Hospital. She previously served as the immunization program coordinator for Aspen’s Community Health Services and assisted Pitkin County Public Health in the emergency response to Covid-19. Maggie has a passion for preventative health and education to promote healthy choices for all ages and stages.
Maggie studied at Loyola College and received her BS in Nursing from Colorado Mesa University in 2008. Her particular nursing skills include pediatric advanced life support, advanced cardiac life support, basic life support, and trauma nursing.
Maggie writes, “I moved to Aspen 23 years ago from New Jersey and immediately fell in love with the mountains. Wanting to learn skills and safety for backcountry adventures, I volunteered for Mountain Rescue-Aspen for over 10 years. While I learned technical skills for remote rescue, I gravitated towards the medical component of this volunteer role, which ultimately led me into nursing. During this time, I also became involved with Aspen Country Day School’s outdoor education program and assisted with trips for over a decade. I am a family-oriented Aspen resident who adventures with my husband John, 8 year-old son Calvin, and our dog, Hobbes.
