Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
At home, Dr. Maggie loves spending time with her super outdoorsy family. Her husband Cliff is a physician, and they have three sons who are obsessed with wrestling and biking. Her oldest son Colton is now age 8, then Camden age 6, and Mason who is age 3. It’s hard to believe all of Dr. Maggie’s breastfed little babies are now becoming big boys!
As for personal hobbies, Dr. Maggie enjoys going with the kids on various outdoor adventures, including camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and mountain climbing. She’s definitely a natural tomboy and always wants to tag along when her husband and sons try to go off and do ‘boy things’ without her. When she has a few hours of ‘me’ time, she enjoys doing BodyPump at the YMCA or exercising on her Peloton bike.
