Storyboard Artist, Assistant Director, Script Supervisor
Maggie’s filmmaking experience began at the age of 16 when she made a documentary about the unhoused population in Tulsa, OK. This project brought together her interest in food justice and her passion for the arts, both of which took root and have become integral, consistent threads that are woven through her life’s work. She has studied ecopsychology, painting and illustration, sustainable agriculture, and art therapy. She has spent time as a social worker, yoga instructor, community gardener, artist and educator.
In her various roles at non-profits and elementary schools, including Global Gardens and Tulsa Botanic Garden, she has shared her passion and knowledge around growing your own food and cultivating a relationship with the natural world with thousands of diverse community members. She has created and implemented original curriculum focused on botany, nutrition, and ecology, as well as produced artistic content, including film, to accompany the curriculum.
Currently, Maggie is Project Coordinator at the Center for Indigenous Health Research and Policy, where her focus is supporting the food sovereignty goals of Indigenous Tribes. Her work on Indigenous Cuisine combines her love of film with her commitment to promoting food systems that are environmentally and socially just, with the recognition that what we eat is inextricably woven into individual, community, and ecological health.
