I’m new here

March 25th, 2015 by maggie d'aversa

I am a weaver, a social researcher and an advocate for women’s equality in the work and social space.  My love for natural dyes leads to growing the plants for dyes and I am now getting back into twill tapestry.  I do have a day job at J&J where I am a physical researcher in surgical would closure which has brought me closer to the world of health disparities in the developing worlds.  Hence, the connection to social research.
