Be a calming presence during your communications and Drupal crises: Margaux O’Malley

Margaux O’Malley continues to find herself at the intersection of three big ideas:

  1. 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 others, and we are all in this together.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 NTEN community, and for the last few years has been honored to lead yoga practice at NTC.
