 Marghretta now

I graduated from Washington Square College in 1971(New York University) with a major in Classical Philology (Greek and Latin) and a minor in Mathematics (I hated Calculus, so even though I had enough credits for a major, I didn't have the Advanced Calculus).

In 1983, I received a M.S. in Management Information Systems with a specialty in Database Design and Security from City College (City University of New York). By attending full time night classes and working full time days, I was able to finish in 1½ years.

My love of music, dance and the fine arts continues unabated. Diane Katanik and I have had subscription seats to New York City Ballet for almost 30 years. Between the Museum of Modern Art's Film Department and Netflix, I see close to 300 movies per year. Museums and art galleries are visited frequently, both the "standards" and new-on-the-scene.

Gardening and green spaces are very important to me. I have had a plot in my community garden for over 30 years. I have been very active with the Green Guerillas, which fights for and preserves green spaces in New York City. I'm also a member of the Indoor Gardening Society of America, as my dozen of houseplants will attest.

I have been a volunteer at Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic since 1985, reading primarily computer and mathematics books, as well as any Latin or Greek that shows up on occasion I've been volunteering at New York City Ballet for over ten years. Using my computer skills I designed the volunteer database application. I am also a captain for the NYCB school matinees.

Everyday starts with a simple yoga asana. I alternate daily between running or weight lifting. I'm a firm believer of "healthy mind in a healthy body" (mens sana in sana corpore). A former long time member of the New York Road Runners, I now run with the New York Hash House Harriers On, On!).

XantheI'm a single mother of a charming daughter, Xanthe Anastasia Jansen. Xanthe attended the Birch Wathen School from 1st to 12th grade. She studied at Bard College in Annadale-on-Hudson and graduated with a degree in English Literature. She now lives "down the block" from the Academy.


Memberships in various professional, business and civic associations including the Association for Women in Computing , Women in Technology , She was a panel member at the American Arbitration Association for four years.

Appointed by the Manhattan Borough President, I served as a member of Community Board 4 for six years, where I was the Chairwoman of the Small Business Committee; Board Secretary; and a member of the Education & Cultural Affairs Committee.
