Margaux O'Malley, Principal
Margaux continues to find herself at the intersection of three big ideas:
- For as long as she can remember she’s had a desire to make the world better. Nicer, more just, more loving, more pleasant. To protect our natural resources so we can enjoy the beauty and wonder of our planet. What one does affects the others, and we are all in this together.
- She loves being with people, listening to their stories and beginning to understand their experiences. She’s inspired by people who give of themselves for others.
- She has a natural aptitude for understanding technology and how things work. She’s found that she has a gift for explaining technical things in plain English (or Spanish) to non-technical people.
She sometimes thinks about doing other work, but is always drawn back to this intersection of technology, communications, people and social change.
So, almost 20 years later, Margaux continues to work and strategize with groovy nonprofits to plan and build websites—often multilingual, and usually with Drupal. She also teaches yoga to tweens and teenagers, and hosts and produces the Yoga of Nonprofit Communications podcast. She’s a proud and enthusiastic long-time member of the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN), and for the last few years has been honored to lead yoga practice at the Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC). She was recently awarded an NTENny for being the Most likely to be a calming presence during your communications or Drupal crises.
