She has worked in livestock show management for the Iowa State Fair and Rodeo Austin in Austin, Texas. Maggie has a passion for youth agricultural education opportunities. Most recently she worked in College Station, Texas with the Brazos Valley Fair and Rodeo organizing competitive events, a large volunteer base, and agricultural education displays.
