Growing up in California, Margaret spent much of her time in the outdoors. Her training in survival in the outdoors came courtesy of her years as a Girl Scout. Margaret enjoys constant movement, whether it is walking, swimming or biking. If she can get her husband or her three teenagers to join her, it is an added benefit. The only place she slows down is when she is in nature.
