Prior to the pandemic, Magdalena was facilitating poetry writing workshops for seniors in assisted living facilities in Santa Cruz, Monterey and Santa Clara Counties through her WisdomVerse program and she has been a guest workshop facilitator for several Santa Cruz County area non-profits.
In 2018, she became a Poetry Partner with the Institute for Poetic Medicine to help continue and expand this work.
