Linda Ivers, Operations and Office Assistant


Linda and her husband, Paul grew up and worked in the Chicago suburbs for many years but recently moved to Allegan. They have four children – two sons and two daughters.  Their son Michael attends the YAC in Otsego and their son Jimmy attends Davenport University. Their daughters live in different states, one in Illinois and one in Arizona.  Linda was a physical therapist for over 30 years but last year decided to no longer practice.  Linda shares that she is very excited to be working at The Arc of Allegan County as she has used The Arc many times throughout the years to help them find resources and services for their son Michael.


Linda enjoys hiking, gardening, travelling, word games and yoga in her free time.

Margo Pierce, Educational Advocate

Margo has four sons, all with disabilities and/or mental health issues. She has learned to advocate by doing it for her own children and along the way discovered it was her passion.  Margo likes to find solutions for schools and families and work together to benefit students focusing on their strengths rather than their weaknesses.

Margo enjoys spending time with friends and family, especially on the beach at Lake Michigan.
