Working with the Marketing team on the release of the next generation version of ButterflyMX’s intercom. Collaborating with Design team members on promotional material to announce such an important moment for the company and for the proptech industry made me very proud!

Fun facts about Maggie
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Somewhere in southern California where I grew up — I love the beach, the landscape, and the climate there! But I’m also very happy living in New York right now, so it’s really a tough choice!
Do you have a secret talent (*cough* superpower) you want people to know about?
Sometimes I think I can telepathically communicate with my cat…
What is your favorite thing to do after work or on the weekends?
I like to discover new creative hobbies, lately I’ve picked up portrait drawing!
