Maggie is an Alabama native, an Idaho resident, and is employed in the great state of Wyoming. An early love of fly-fishing led her to pursue a degree in Entomology and Poultry Science from Auburn University, making her somewhat of a bug and hackle expert. She has Master’s Degree in Entomology from the University of Nebraska, with an aquatic-insect-education specialty. After spending all of her college summers in the Jackson Hole area and a few years at grad school, Maggie finally decided to make the Tetons her permanent home. She likes to joke that the New England kids move West to ski, while the Southern kids head West to hunt and fish. It could not be more accurate in Maggie’s case. A true love for insects and the outdoors made a career in fly fishing a natural progression. After working for years at local shops as a buyer, she now manages Orvis Jackson Hole and does entomology-related outreach in the local community. She and her fly-fishing guide-husband, Hunter, live in Victor, Idaho with their two dogs, Bug and Missy.
