Margaret Butterfield began flying in 2009 at TSNY Boston when she went in search of something to relieve the stress of her academic life, and she immediately fell in love. She has a doctorate in Ancient Christian History from Harvard and has taught at Smith and Mount Holyoke, but finds flying to be much more fun. She’s been coaching flying since 2011, and coaches at NECCA and Revolution Trapeze in Massachusetts. In addition to both flying and catching, Margaret also enjoys the circus disciplines of solo and duo static trapeze and straps. She lives in Massachusetts with her partner Henry Wheaton, co-owner and coach at SHOW Circus Studio in Easthampton, MA, one dog, two cats, and the occasional foster kitten and (human) houseguest.
