 Margaret or Maggie, is a certified Yoga and Meditation teacher, Reiki level 1 & 2, Breathwork Facilitator, Aromatherapy consultant, and Chakra consultant. Maggie developed Journey with Maggie, a wellness practice with the sole purpose of helping women and mothers - especially mothers in the BIPOC community - to heal by using a number of healing modalities - such as Yoga, Meditation, Reiki, Breathwork, Aromatherapy.

Maggie embarked on the self-healing/discovery journey a few years ago when she herself felt stuck,  never really investing in herself  this journey 100%. Even though Spirit, The Universe, God, Goddess, The Divine were always pushing her to dive into healing and self-discovery.

It was not until the birth of her son, born prematurely in 2018 - that she became extremely sick  with preeclampsia - that she truly started to dedicate herself to a  healing journey. Maggie admits to experiencing 

 a roller coaster of emotions, from anger,  disappointment, sadness to even  helplessness. After her son was discharged from the NICU, Maggie came to the realization of needing care through hardships and began a journey of self-discovery.

Maggie started studying healing and wellness modalities and is now helping other women going through a difficult time in their lives or simply want to align, become grounded or balanced with their health and spirit.
