Margi came to Boise from Portland, Oregon in 2013. She graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science in 2001 and in 2002 completed the Graduate Teacher Education Program. After graduating she began working at a child abuse prevention program working with kids 0-3 and their families. She was an office manager for over eight years at Portland Housing Center whose mission is to allow people access to quality education, counseling and financial services to realize the American Dream of homeownership. She started working for LINC in the summer of 2017 as Billing and Payroll Clerk. Margi has spent about 13 years in the non-profit sector and although she is not always in a direct service roll she is happy working in an environment where she feels empowering people is priority. When Margi is not working she spends as much time as possible with her three children and enjoys family time with her three siblings and their kids who all live within five miles from each other.
