In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
Eleanor Roosevelt
 

When Megan joined the Junior League, she came with previous volunteer experience and knew that she wanted to learn to be a better volunteer and a stronger leader. She had no idea she was joining a group of women that included Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford, and Marilyn Carlson Nelson. Megan is a believer in lifelong learning and self-improvement; she is grateful for having said yes to opportunities to shape her life and herself.

Expertise

Prior to joining MRA, Megan worked with organizations across the Twin Cities in all industries to help them find talented employees on a temporary and direct hire basis. She has firsthand knowledge of the staffing and search market and special expertise in recruiting strategies, employee and talent management, and co-employment concerns. She has been responsible for many aspects of human resources including workers’ compensation, investigations, compliance, training and leadership development, drug testing and background investigations, assessments, and more.

  • Assisted in the creation of a 6-month training program to assist low income women in transitioning out of generational poverty through assessments, increased self-awareness, learning and practicing of new behaviors, mentorship, and coaching.
  • Achieved the Certified Staffing Professional Designation (CSP) through the American Staffing Association in August 2017.
