Maggie Carlson, R.N.
Give Me Sight Foundation
Maggie Carlson’s involvement with the Give Me Sight Foundation and its medical mission began in 2012. She has worked with GMSF founder, Dr. Haines, for over 20 years as a registered nurse. As OR manager of the Oregon Eye Surgery Center’s operating room, Maggie’s organizational skills are put to optimal use while volunteering for the GMSF’s medical missions. Her tireless preparation of the missions allows for a seamless rollout on the surgical day, allowing more efficiency and thus maximizing the number of surgeries performed and sight restored. In addition to her work as a R.N., Maggie has been actively involved as a board member in several non-profit organizations. The GMSF annual fundraiser, “Night for Sight”, has greatly benefited from her continued experience in other non-profit fundraising. We are fortunate to have her on our board and are grateful for her many donated hours.
“Even though I have organized the trip before, each year I still am profoundly surprised when the mountains of generous medical donations come in from the community, our loyal patients, the ophthalmic companies and humanitarian organizations. They make it possible for us to provide quality, state of the art surgical services to the underserved in developing countries.” Maggie Carlson
