The Staff:

Margaret Filkins

Executive Director

Margaret has been with Wellness House since 2007 as the Development Director and then as the Executive Director. Margaret graduated from Lakeside School in Seattle and later earned a degree in business from the University of Puget Sound. She has used her education and experience to enrich the lives of others by serving her community for over eighteen years. As the Executive Director, she consistently acts as a responsible steward of donations and resources, keeping Wellness House stable throughout an unstable economy, while furthering Mazie's dream. Margaret's passion stems from the experience of working with the "amazing supporters, survivors, and volunteers of Wellness House". While she humbly gives credit to others, Margaret is a true inspiration to us all personally and professionally.
