Maggie Clampitt – Freelance Writer

I grew up in a small farm town North East of Columbia surrounded by family and friends. I came to the University of Missouri to get my Bachelor’s degree in Business and for a bonus found my best friend, my husband Josh. Together we have two amazing fur babies and are about to begin a new adventure together in Georgia. I love pizza, nature, reading and above all writing. Writing has always been my escape from everything and my best love yet!”
