Hi y’all, I’m Maggie! I’m so happy you’re here!
I’m a Los Angeles based TV host, journalist, parenting and lifestyle expert, and former public relations executive, in addition to my favorite job: mommy to two precious babes. I’ve been featured on KTLA Morning News, L.A. Parent Magazine and Mother Magazine sharing parenting tips, real-life mom experiences, entertaining ideas, and product recommendations geared toward young families. My blog is my small corner of the internet to share ways I’m working to simplify and beautify my life and connect with other modern mommies. Here, I post about easy recipes, positive parenting advice and self-care tips, in addition to my other loves for travel, fashion, fitness, and mental health awareness. Whatever brought you here, I hope you’re able to find something that inspires you to live better and brighter today – whether its a new recipe, ideas for date night, a new favorite outfit, or tips on how to squeeze in self-care in a house full of busy toddlers!
Thank you for being here and following along as I pursue my lifelong dream of working in television. I was the lead co-anchor of my high school’s television news show and earned a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Texas. During an entertainment news internship in LA, I had the incredible opportunity to personally interview many A-list celebrities at Hollywood movie premiers and special events. I graduated college during the recession, which resulted in switching media paths to public relations. For over a decade, I had the opportunity to be immersed in some of the world’s finest culinary and travel experiences while representing luxury hospitality brands, and it was during this time that I learned to forever seek and appreciate the exceptional. During the slow stay-at-home days of the pandemic, I re-evaluated my career and decided it was now or never time to jump back into my dream of working in broadcast. I truly feel so blessed to be able to share and connect with people via the magic of media. Thank you to everyone who’s tuned in on TV, read my blog, or given me a follow! It sincerely means a lot!
I’m originally from Texas, which explains my penchant for Southern hospitality and entertaining, college football (Hook ’em, Horns!), and breakfast tacos, but I have fully embraced and love all that California has to offer. I’m a regular at the beach, and I love hiking, dining alfresco at local restaurants, and anything that involves being outdoors in our sunny SoCal weather. I’m very involved in my community while donating my time volunteering to Pasadena’s Kidspace Children’s Museum and sitting on the Board of Directors for YMCA of the Foothills. Our family is grateful to call this beautiful part of the country our home.
I’m actively pursuing more writing, video, and TV opportunities, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if there’s potential to work together. Curious to know if we could partner? Just ask — I’d love to connect! As a media and communications professional, I’m social by nature and love connecting with people! Please feel free to say hi by following me on Instagram and TikTok!
