Unlike most in this profession, Maggie did not grow up surrounded by family pets. She is an “Air Force Brat” which made having a pet (according to her parents) an unreasonable option. However, she found animals to care for wherever her family lived. She especially enjoyed, much to the disapproval of her neighbors, taking care of the stray packs of dogs in their neighborhood during a stay in Tehran, Iran. While overseas she developed a strong desire to become part of the veterinary community and to assist in the care of the unwanted strays and family pets.

In the late 1970’s her family landed in Dayton. Although this has been her home for 40 years, she still has strong ties to one of her favorite childhood experiences, The Nebraska Cornhuskers football team. She attended Columbus State Community College and obtained her Associates in Veterinary Technology in 1986. After working several years as a technician, she returned to school, majoring in Business Administration and Finance, and graduated from Wright State University in 2007. She has been employed at Twin Maples since 1986.

Maggie’s primary position is the Hospital Manager. She works closely with Dr. Clouse to assure that we continue to meet the expectations of our staff and clients.

Her furry dog family consists ofSharlee a very loyal and sweet Australian Shepherd and Roxie a dog from the streets of Iran. She was lucky enough to be able to foster Roxie when she arrived at the states and it did not take long for her to fall in love with Roxie’s “street smarts”. On her days off you may find her enjoying any outside activity including hiking, camping,and her latest passion, cycling.
