Hi, I’m Megan and I am “recovering” control freak. Recovering is a loose definition most days, but I’m trying.

I’m just an average woman who wears many hats in life: Christian, wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, employee, hobbyist, organizer, budgeter, and the list could go on -really no different than you.

I’m constantly trying to better myself, simplify my life, and find time for family and myself.

I’d love to say that I always “let go and let God,” meaning I leave my problems up to God to handle, but that would be a lie.

I am proud to be married to my wonderful husband, Brian, for over 14 years now and mother to our wonderful children, Cassidy and Amelia. In fact it is because of them that this blog and business were born.

It all began in 2015 when I had a conversation with a friend. We were discussing what our dream jobs would be and why we weren’t pursuing them. Central for both of us were our families and our desire to be “present” with them more.

A long story short, I put into practice those years of helping others find their career fit and discovered my ultimate passion. You can read more about that here.

My ultimate goal is to make a full-time career out of helping others to follow their dreams, be their best selves, and appreciate who they are NOW.  I want to help women simplify their lives and provide encouragement in the busiest seasons of their life


I don’t claim to be an expert on anything rather I’ve learned a few things along the way that may be helpful to others. My wish for you is that you will find peace and happiness in your life right where it is. I want you to be able to enjoy the moment and the season of life you are in now. Hopefully, some of the tips, tricks and strategies that I will share will assist you in controlling your controllables so that you can go about living your best life and loving it. . . most of the time. (We need to set realistic expectations- we can’t be happy all the time)

The mission of Minutes with Meg is to help women follow their dreams, be inspired to be their best selves and appreciate who they are.
