Born in Warsaw and raised in Goshen, Megan graduated from Concord High School and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Indiana University, Bloomington. After practicing for several years as an Intensive Care nurse at Memorial Hospital in South Bend, Megan realized her passion for business and left the nursing career to assist her father with the operation of his local non-profit agency, the Crossing School of Business & Entrepreneurship. While still serving on the board of directors for the Crossing, Megan is currently employed as an Executive Assistant at Keystone RV.
Megan would like to thank the Samaritan Center and their board of directors for allowing her to be a part of this event in support of such a noble organization. Megan would also like to offer a special thank you to her family, friends and co-workers for their encouragement and support along the way. More importantly, Megan would like to thank her amazing husband Ryan and two beautiful boys Mason (10) and Maddox (7) for encouraging her and practicing at home alongside her!
Lastly, Megan would like to offer a huge thank you to everyone at That’s Dancing Studio, mainly her dance partner Jake Wilson, for their patience, time and support. While pushing her completely out of her comfort zone, Jake always found a way to make dancing fun and enjoyable and she is very excited to show off her countless hours of hard work this evening!
Still Dancing in Elkhart is in its 11th season raising funds to support The Samaritan Center in Elkhart. The Center was founded by the First Presbyterian Church of Elkhart in 1972. It is the founding Center for the Solihten Institute (FKA The Samaritan Institute) and a network of 44 other Centers around the country. Still Dancing in Elkhart started during the Great Recession in 2009. It has brought financial healing to the Center and subsequent growth in serving the community.
The Center’s mission is to be the expression of the love of God by helping people under stress. The Center provides high level, spiritually integrated, mental health counseling to people of all ages, whatever their faith background might be.
This event will provide fee assistance to help ensure access for those who could otherwise not afford services. The success of this event is directly responsible for the Center growth in size and ministry over the last 10 years. In 2019 we expect to work with over 500 individuals, couples, and families and almost a third of them will have some level of fee assistance to support counseling hours.
Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
