Nichole joined the Wintonbury staff in 2008 and is currently serving as the church's first ever Communications Director. She believes that communication is a conversation, so if you have any questions, feedback or ideas about how things are communicated at Wintonbury, she would love to hear from you! Nichole loves writing, chocolate, Disney World, movies, the Red Sox, the outdoors, her Kindle, Dr. Who, Psych, her family and God...not necessarily in that order.
Margy is a master juggler...not necessarily of objects but of all the assorted things her position requires! Chances are if you call or visit the office, she will be the one to greet you. She and her husband, Tom, have two adult sons, Daniel and Chris, who also attend Wintonbury. Margy is a California girl by birth. She loves ballroom dancing, cruising and a good challenge. Which might explain why she took up snowboarding at an age when most people are hanging up their skis!
