Megan loves to celebrate milestone moments. Magic is created when a crystalizing experience of joy, understanding, or transformation occurs. When these experiences are shared with others, they have the power to change lives and inspire action. Megan’s passion for impactful communication supports creative work at AJ by growing and strengthening client relationships, while also ensuring smooth day to day project management and execution occur.
After 15 years as a donor relations expert in various higher education institutions, Megan has learned the importance of capturing the interest of constituents, translating that into action, and communicating gratitude. After working with August Jackson on the client side, she was inspired to join the AJ team and apply that experience to a larger client base. Her interest (possibly obsession) in organization makes her a great addition to the Engagement Lead Team.
When she is off the clock, Megan enjoys spending time with her young daughter and husband. They recently moved back home to be with their families – go Hoosiers! The wonder, joy, and awe that her daughter experiences when encountering new things inspires Megan’s personal and professional life.
When asked about why she loves working at August Jackson, she said, “It’s the people and creative work! Every interaction I have with AJ team members is inspiring. And AJ has given me the opportunity to explore a whole new world.”
