Margot solidified her desire to protect our last remaining natural places while living near majestic coastal redwoods. A graduate of Humboldt State University in Arcata, California, she discovered that combining her organizational skills with a love of nature could set her on a career path she could wholly embrace. After graduating, she headed north to start a career and a family. Margot started working for Tualatin Riverkeepers in 2001, and feels fortunate to be engaged with the mission of the organization and honored to be part of an environmental movement that connects people to nature. While exploring the river with volunteer paddle trip leaders, connecting with members, or strategizing with outreach committees on key projects, she is reminded that she definitely traveled down the right career path.
