Margaret Gee was born and raised in rural Australia and spent 17 years of her life in her parent’s farm. After completing high school Margaret obtained a Cadetship in Journalism at the prestigious daily newspaper The Melbourne Age. Later on she worked as a Womens’ Editor on a national Sunday newspaper and as a TV reporter at a magazine. And then, destiny took over, and she accidentally landed into the wonderful world of publishing.
Margaret is a keen advocate of animal welfare, and was delighted to be appointed Australia’s first Ambassador for the U.S based Snow Leopard Conservancy. She was lucky enough to spot a snow leopard in the wild in Ladakh in January 2020.
Margaret and her husband Dr Brent Waters who is a volunteer child psychiatrist in Bhutan, have now visited Bhutan 11 times. They both share a deep affection for the people, culture, landscape and extraordinary flora and fauna in Bhutan, and expect this transformative journey in the beautiful Eastern Himalayas to be on-going. In short, Bhutan has become their heart-land.
