Margot joined Bonnie and Dawn in the leadership of Spring Farm CARES in 1995. She taught recreation and park management at Texas A & M and Ithaca College, and was Assistant Research Professor at the University of Washington College of Forest Resources. She also put in time with IBM as a Systems Engineer, and with Boise Cascade as a Management Consultant. Along the way, she co-founded Service Dogs, Inc., in Oakland California, and Animals in Distress, a wildlife rehabilitation organization in Boise, Idaho. During an eight-year period she was a volunteer at the Idaho Humane Society, acting variously as treasurer, vice-President, and President, while also creating their computerized animal shelter management system, and writing important surveys. Spring Farm CARES lucked out when she joined our team.
