Margaret Watkins

Event Concierge

Margaret is the firm’s event concierge and takes care of planning and organizing the educational seminars and client appreciation events. Cornerstone aims to have you feel comfortable the moment you arrive, and Margaret will ensure you feel the same when you attend the company events. In preparation for these events, her talents include impeccable setup and decorating, being a dedicated host, greeting you at registration, providing meeting materials, and arranging food.

She received her AA degree in early childhood education at West Valley College in Saratoga, Calif., and after graduating moved abroad to Brasil. She lived in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro for seven years. While there, she taught English as a second language. She’s speaks fluent Portuguese, which also helps her speak some Spanish and understand some Italian.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, and in 2016, she went back to Brasil for a visit after 28 years. She also loves motorcycle rides with her husband Craig, spending time with their grown children, grandchildren, extended family and friends, and their furry “child” Bosco, the family’s Border Collie.
