A Little About Margo

Margo has been married to her husband John for 30 years and together they have three adult children. Her eldest daughter is an RN, her middle son is an educator, and her youngest son is in college studying to be an engineer. 


In her off-work hours, she loves to hike in the beautiful Black Hills. Her boys have recently gotten her and her husband hooked on hiking '14ers' in Colorado. Her boys have summited nearly half of the 58 peaks over 14,000 feet–Margo has a pretty healthy fear of heights, so she is pretty proud to have conquered 5. 

Margo believes, in both her work and personal life, that making connections and developing relationships is essential in order for all human beings to thrive.
