Walking With Maga
WRITER - SPEAKER - DREAMER
Adventure captured Maureen's heart early. Her favorite childhood books transported her to magical places and sparked her lifelong love of travel. As a middle child in a family of nine, Maureen grew up surrounded by characters. Place, character, and a yearning to comprehend the sorrows and wonder of life are the heart of her writing.
A native Californian, Maureen earned her B.A. degree in English from St. Mary's College of California and also attended Loyola University in Rome, Italy, where she studied Roman art and architecture and learned to speak passable Italian. Her first job post college was in bookselling. For the past decade, Maureen has wed her writing background with her interest and expertise in dreams. She teaches a workshop series she developed called "DreamCrafting,"and is a dream group facilitator.
Maureen's philosophy, in work and life, is to seize the opportunities that come your way, no matter how challenging they seem. Writer. Speaker. Dreamer. Astronaut? Well, Maureen may not be not astronaut yet, but give her time and she'll take on the stars, too.
