Dr. Margarett Ann (Bachus) Wilson, M.D., M.P.H., in a word, indescribable! It is indeed an arduous commission, to summarize a woman you have known your entire existence, in one page. To condense her influence, intelligence, kindness, creativity, charisma, humility, poise, and grace to a few words, is more than a formidable task, but I shall endeavor.
Margarett Ann, as her family calls her, is not what she has been through. Her ability to transpose and transfix herself and her circumstances, for the betterment of those around her is supernatural. She radiates positivity in her every breath. She is the one who will push you to your limits and beyond what you believe you are capable of, while nurturing and supporting you.
