Margaret J. Hansen

Margaret J. Hansen loves to tell stories. She wrote The Wellman Stories because she likes you to be flushed with feelings — like the startle of paradox, like confidence in healing — particularly confidence in healing.


She has an undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Iowa and a Doctor of ­Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Although she currently lives in Taos, New Mexico, she returns several times a year to work with her Eastern Iowa network.
