Marguerite “Maggie” Jones has served in local governments and nonprofit organizations for nearly a decade. She has worked with economic development incentive programs, managed municipal tax increment financing (TIF) districts, and administered efforts to end homelessness. She currently works for a local government agency.
In the summer of 2015, Jones embarked on her most important venture yet: being a (unicorn) mom. She has redefined buzz words like “work-life balance” and “bandwidth” as she attempts to work and parent full-time. Her maternal musings are usually awkward, sometimes funny, and always authentic.
Jones holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Master in Public Administration (MPA), both from Texas Tech University. She is a proud, card-carrying member of Leadership Fort Worth.
Jones resides in Bedford, TX with her husband, Chris, and their one-year-old son, Zachary. When not managing grants, interpreting federal regulations, or being mom, she can be found drinking excessive amounts of coffee, running (slowly), or watching baseball.
