Maggie McManus, C.K.D.
Maggie is the owner of McManus Group in Nyack and has been in business for over 20 years designing kitchens, baths, and many other architectural interiors in every style of home. Maggie was among the first to be certified in Kitchen Design by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). While serving on Nyack’s Architectural Review Board for over 10 years she worked to help maintain the Village of Nyack’s unique character and architectural style. Maggie’s design sensibilities have been shaped by extensive world travels, college studies in France, and from growing up in a family with two acclaimed architects as her uncles.
Maggie likes having a library card, and enjoys reading and writing creative non-fiction in her free time. She’s an avid gardener who loves native plants such as ferns, hastas, and native trees. Maggie also has a love for music and dancing, and plays rubboard in a zydeco band!
