Meg Saxman, a 2018 Ketner School of Business alumna, works for the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne as the Director of Marketing and Communications. Working in the nonprofit field has a lot of enjoyable moments, but Meg loves the impact that her company gets to have on the community. "As a community foundation, we have the great honor of giving money away, helping nonprofits students, and being a part of community projects," said Meg. "It's exciting to help our community in so many different ways."
Meg shares that you shouldn't be afraid to try new things! Consider joining Greek life or a club at Trine. Trine has so much to offer, but only if you take advantage of it.
"Trine was instrumental in getting me to where I am today." - Meg Saxman
"Not only was the education fantastic, but the team of professors, advisors, and mentors I found at Trine ultimately led me to nonprofit work and my work here at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne," said Meg "One thing I loved about my time at Trine is that I had support from professors and advisors who were always willing to introduce me to companies, people and new opportunities."
Meg suggests that you should get an internship! Internships are a great opportunity to give you a glimpse into what an industry and field are really like. "I had several internship experiences, and it was ultimately my internship at the Steuben County Community Foundation that made me realize mt passion for nonprofit work," shared Meg.
