I met Margaret in NYC in 2003 when we were both working for Me&Ro.
Right away I could tell that she was a force to be reckoned with.
I left NYC in 2004 and lost touch with her however, we have been recently reconnected through Facebook.
Margaret is now married, has 2 beautiful daughters of her own, a stepson and works full time.
Before taking a new position as an art director, Margaret had her own successful business.
She also has Tigering, her great blog whose name is so suiting since she is a tiger!

A- Oh my, I’m a huge fan of Romantic names… and somehow I had to include Nina for Nina Simone my FAVORITE singer on the planet… Natalia is an Eastern European name and my dad is from Czech… so we came up with Natalia Simone, seemed perfect. For our second, my husband’s name is Julian so we thought Juliette, my uncle & grand father were named James so we got Juliette James…
