Maggie's passion has been perinatal nursing, specifically labour and delivery. Her Master's thesis considered the role of the L&D nurse, and her PhD dissertation investigated the social organization of L&D nurses' pain work. Other research projects have considered other aspects of nurses' and clinical instructors' work and student resilience. She is currently starting data collection for a survey of the food security status of the MRU campus with a multi-disciplinary team. In her currently role of Associate Dean for Research and Scholarship for the Faculty of Health, Community and Education, she supports faculty from Child Studies and Social Work, Education, Nursing and Midwifery and Health and Physical Education in their scholarly pursuits.
