Margie Burchfield -deciBel Research, Inc.

I'm the Director of Administrative Services at deciBel Research in Cummings Research Park. deciBel is an engineering firm that is considered a "radar house". The people here make radars smarter through software engineering and data analysis. I basically have three jobs: I support the owners of the company, supervise the admin team and am in charge of our 40,000 sq ft headquarters, including the janitorial staff. I also provide support to our two satellite offices in Dayton, Ohio and Colorado Springs. I'm currently a member of ASAP (American Society of Administrative Professionals) and NNA (National Notary Association), but don't hold a leadership position in either of those. In addition to my work here in Research Park, I'm also an entrepreneur. I am a furniture designer (AncientCelticDesigns.com), I have a consulting firm for small business owners (TheCelticOffice.com), and I'm writing my first romance novel (hopefully for Harlequin). I also believe in volunteering in the community, so I co-host a Thursday evening radio show through WLRH, where we read news articles on the air for visually impaired listeners. And, I host a monthly mentoring luncheon for local executive assistants. I'm very excited to be part of the EWI Huntsville chapter and look forward to the coming year.
