I had been a practicing nutritionist for 17 years with an office in Houston. But after my first son was born, I realized that 9-to-5 wasn’t for me anymore. I started working part-time and retired when my second son was born.
I went to a cabi show and after knowing the Stylist for a few years, I saw her really enjoying what she was doing…she was able to put both her kids through private school and add financial aid to her household. I could see the potential to create a career that was out of the ordinary—I thought, “I can do this.”
I love being surrounded by women who are dreamers and believers and thinkers and doers.
I don’t define success as merely making money. It’s having balance in your life, and as a mother, that meant I needed to have the time to be a Cub Scout leader, a member of the PTA, and the class mom. My youngest son falls on the autism spectrum, so it was very important for me to be able to take him to therapy and do the extra work; I wanted to be there for my kids, and cabi gives me the freedom to do just that.
Cabi also gave me the freedom to continue to pursue my passion as a nutritionist when the opportunity arose. A doctor I had worked with for years came to me and said, “Margo, I want a nutritionist on staff. Please tell me you’ll do it.” I was able to find balance between two careers I absolutely love, and I feel so extremely fortunate to be able to do so.
My goal is to help other women discover both the fashion and the career opportunity that cabi has to offer. When I first meet a new client, I make an investment in getting to know her on a personal level so she feels she’s getting as much out of the experience as I am.
Sharing the gift of a cabi career with other women and empowering them to be their best selves is the sunshine that lights my life.
