They're my advisor  •  Director - Business Advisory Board, Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary's University and President & CEO, Digital Nova Scotia.
Megan participated an engaged in our Power IT Up Workshop-Series (Female Leaders/Entrepreneurs in STEM) - being open to lifelong learning, m ... eeting other leaders in related fields and engaging with senior STEM leaders speaks to a keen and continuous interest in personal and professional growth. I had personal engagements as an advisor with Megan - an attentive, thoughtful, very personable and mature listener with a lot of intelligence, drive, resilience and willingness to embrace challenges and risks, is what impressed me most with Megan! Megan is a go-getter and I am proud to vouch for her and excited what she'll do next. Very importantly, she's a great role model for women of all ages which is crucial due to the underrepresentation of females in most STEM (STEAM) fields. Go for it, Megan. You deserve it!
