Margaret A. Owen

Billing Specialist

My friends call me Marge. I recently relocated to Arizona from Illinois, after my husband of 19 years transferred with his company and our only daughter moved to California. I come from a large family of 11 siblings that are spread out around the US.

I love it here in Sun Lakes and have been fortunate to meet some new and hopefully lifelong friends. I enjoy playing pickleball, walking, jogging, hiking, and doing aerobics. We both enjoy going to the many craft breweries in the area and watching Cub games!

I worked 20 years in finance, of which 15 years was in accounts payable. You may have heard of Ace Hardware, Valspar and Sherwin Williams. In a matter of 3 years, Valspar purchased Ace Paint and Sherwin Williams purchased Valspar. As you can imagine with each takeover, I had to learn new software programs, follow new rules and “break-in” new managers. Did I complain? (maybe just a little). In any case, I did choose to persevere.

Now that we have settled into our new home, I am ready to start a new chapter in the workforce. As a new member of Desert Family Eyecare, my many years of experience in payable will fit right in.
