Maggie is excited to be the DTRF’s first Communications Manager, starting in January of 2023. Her responsibilities are centered around promoting the DTRF’s mission, brand, values and goals through compelling messaging, images, and programs both on and offline.
She comes to the DTRF as a rare cancer survivor. Diagnosed in 2011 with Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma (EHE) found in the liver and lungs, she has undergone a liver resection and multiple tumor ablations. Living just south of Pittsburgh, PA, she has been lucky to find doctors that have familiarity with EHE at UPMC and Hillman Cancer Center. With a ‘watch and wait’ approach, Maggie is able to have an active professional and personal life. Professionally, she has contributed web design/development and social media work for The EHE Foundation and feels this is the best way she can give back to that community.
Maggie holds a Master’s Degree in Multimedia Technology from Duquesne University, and has used that education to operate her own small web design, branding and digital marketing agency servicing small businesses and nonprofits. With a blend of creativity and strategy, her clients have enjoyed a single point of contact for all their communications needs. This all-inclusive approach has allowed Maggie to develop a wide range of communication skills that she is thrilled to translate to the DTRF!
When she is not busy with her agency or other community projects, she enjoys spending time with her family, skiing with her kids, hiking with her dog, and laughing with her friends.
