Maggie DeLauney-Elder

Maggie is a freelance writer, part-time faculty at CCBC, and full-time mom to a 3-year-old tornado of intensity. Her interests include finding fun places to explore locally and around the world, experimenting with delicious recipes, playing video games, reading, and watching television (though mostly stuff intended for toddlers, honestly). She was born and raised in Baltimore, and even though she can't get enough travel, Baltimore will always be home.
