On a more personal level, Maggie is a proud mother of two boys – Ben and Jacob. She spends many a day “channeling” never-ending energy, breaking up fights, and playing or watching sports. The Frye’s love the outdoors and get out for a hike whenever possible. Maggie is an avid runner and finds her Zen during early morning runs – sans headphones…sans kids…sans deadlines.
