Margaret grew up in Perth, Western Australia but came back to England as a teenager. After travelling back and forth she eventually settled in West London, working for a computer company, in the payroll department. From the City office she also worked as a Branch Accountant and Fixed Asset Analyst before leaving to start a family.

In 1996 when Jasmine was 4 and Ashleigh 3, the family moved to Buckinghamshire. Margaret then worked with her previous employer for the next six years. In 2003 she joined Cannon Moorcroft, completing a full circle, since her first ever job was with a Chartered Accountant.

After work Margaret enjoys jogging, cooking and mosaicing, when time allows.
