Welcome from Marga
Hi everyone! I'm the Director of Studies for the International Residential College. My job is to build and create a healthy and caring community and provide mentoring and mind expanding opportunities for our students. I enjoy teaching on topics related to balanced living, leadership, and community building.
In addition, I work with the IRC Council Ministers, providing leadership training and organizational development. I enjoy meeting students and provide both informal and formal mentoring for personal and professional development.
Outside of the IRC, I am writing a book due out next summer, The Way of the Hammock Designing Calm for a Busy Life. I also give workshops and talks in corporations, businesses and the community.
You will see me at various events and programs mingling around to get to know you and your interests. Please introduce yourself to me if we do not meet at one of the gatherings.
