Margi comes from a long line of socially conscious men and women who set a very high bar. One line of the Jaycee Creed written by her father says, “Service to Humanity is the Best Work of Life” and that is how she was raised. Since 1996 Margi has owned Vermont Awards and Engraving, Inc., which employs seven people working to fulfill the mission “Recognition Is Respect Made Visible.”

Prior to this Margi was a founding member of Genesee County (MI) Habitat for Humanity then its board president. She also worked in Economic Development in Flint MI. Before relocating to Flint, Margi was President of Blue Cross K.C. Credit Union (Kansas City, MO) and before that a Trust Operations Manager at Huntington Bank of Columbus, OH. In all those years Margi served on various boards and did many direct service outreach programs. VBSR is the icing on the cake, offering so many ways to serve that it is very hard to choose which ones!
