Margie is Chief Advancement Officer at Los Angeles Philharmonic. Previously, she was Chief Philanthropy Officer and Senior Vice President of The Trust for Public Land. Her love of birds was ignited when she did her first Audubon Birdathon in southern Arizona – and further fueled when she volunteered for an Alaska Department of Fish and Game study monitoring Marbled Murrelets in the Tongass National Forest. Margie received her BA in Linguistics/Psychology and MSW in community planning from UCLA. A native Californian, she enjoys traveling, diving, hiking, birding, reading, and good wine.
The human experience is best understood through the sharing of stories. I believe that the beauty and the importance of birds can be shared in the same way. And that’s what BirdNote does, producing wonderful stories that inform a broad audience about the wonder of birds, a critical indicator species for our planet.
