Margaret grew up in Charleston and attended Ashley Hall.  After Ashley Hall, she completed her undergraduate degree in anthropology with a concentration in medical humanities at Davidson College.  She then received her master's in health administration, with honors, from the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, in 2005.  

Margaret is a nationally certified professional care manager with over 20 years of experience.  Her career has spanned a spectrum of geriatric care from residential settings and respite agencies to individual counseling and family guidance.  During her graduate school years, she worked at Roper Saint Francis Healthcare’s community senior program and at HCR-Manor Care as admissions and marketing director. In 2006, she became the social services coordinator at the Bishop Gadsden Retirement Community, where for more than three years she managed an array of residents’ health and social needs as part of an interdisciplinary team with an emphasis on promoting independence.  In 2010, she became program director for Respite Care Charleston (RCC), where for more than four years she tailored support and services for families affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias.  Then in 2014, Margaret started Aging Life Care Charleston and has continued to use her expertise, knowledge and passion to serve Charleston's seniors.

In addition to her role as an aging life care professional and  business owner, Margaret is the Aging Life Care Association (ALCA) Charleston Chapter Leader.  She is also a founding member of the ALCA Charleston Chapter.  Margaret received the ALCA Outstanding Southeast Chapter Member award in 2019.  She is also the past Treasurer of Aging Life Care Association (ALCA) Southeast Region. 


Margaret is also active in the community.  She is a certified Alzheimer's Association group facilitator and former support group facilitator at Franke at Seaside and Respite Care Charleston.  She is a past board member of the Ladies' Benevolent Society, First Scots Kindergarten and Redeemer Children's Center and Preschool.

“Without Margaret’s smart and steady
support, I’m not at all sure I could have
managed to keep (and sometimes regain!)
my equilibrium over several years of caring
for my husband who had vascular dementia.
She was there when I hit a wall, when I got
confused, and when understanding and
gentle guidance were exactly what was
needed. I am ever grateful.”

Susan Lyons, A Caregiver
