Margaret Rush, first as a labor and delivery nurse, and then as a Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner, spent her early career working in a hospital environment, and then, when starting a co-operative clinic in Denver, became a jack-of-all-trades as clinic supervisor/administrator/ practitioner. In retirement she and her husband traveled extensively—particularly in Latin America. She obtained her Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder. Twenty-two years ago she and her husband fell in love with Salida, designed and built (just the two of them—no contractors) their own house. Ten years ago they adopted a beautiful, beloved, Guatemalan baby boy—whom, Margaret says, has become her best life-teacher. She is currently volunteering at the Montessori Charter School, and is a member of their Board.
