She has lived in some of the most beautiful wild places in the US with her Park Ranger husband and children, taught University level classes in history, geography, and geology,and is a geologist. She has been the proprietor of Ancient Way Trader since 1994, and a jewelry maker using semiprecious stones and sterling silver since 1997. After earning her first Masters degree, she and her husband began working and hiking in National Parks, often living in the backcountry, where bears, moose, deer, beaver, coyotes, and more, were as common as raccoons and turtles are in in most of the US. The family lived in or near several Indian Reservations in the West, and it was while there that Margery learned that her lineage included at least two Native American tribes.
After moving to the Florida Keys when her husband became Chief Ranger of Everglades National Park , Margery opened Ancient Way Trader, named after the east-west road between pueblos across Northern New Mexico, which in translation to English is “The Ancient Way.” Since her family lived on this road and many Native craftspeople lived near this road, the name Ancient Way was chosen for the store to showplace their authentic crafts, art, and music. She was active in the Pow Wow circuit through Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia and Florida from 1997 to 2008 until moving to Ozark National Scenic Riverways, where she stayed closer to home with parents and grandchildren. Since moving to Missouri, Margery has focused on teaching and weaving baskets of hand gathered local materials and creating jewelry from semiprecious stones and sterling silver.
Drunvalo and Claudette Melchizedek, Dr. Catherine Shainberg, Rosi Barrera , and Daniel Mitel taught new (actually ancient) ways to become more balanced and to live a more personally meaningful life, using powerful different perspectives. It is her great joy to meet and share with others who desirous of greater personal clarity, and releasing old patterning.
