Margarita balances out her left-brain daily work activities with indulging some of her right-brain passions, such as holistic health and being a massage therapist. She also enjoys yoga, walking, snowboarding, and spending time with her husband Patrick and their pleasantly plump orange cat. Oh, and know that every time U2 has a concert within a 200-mile radius you will find her and Patrick in the pit, likely right in the front of Adam or Edge, and her voice will be gone the next day.
