An Eagle graduate came back to the nest to share how she has been able to combine her love of a foreign language with her career as part of the STEMM Idol Speaker Series.
Megan Kelleher ‘03 is a Canadian Sales Manager for BarSplice Products.
“I call customers in Canada, I make sales visits up there, I present presentations to structural engineering firms and I sell the product,” Kelleher shared.
Along with having to demonstrate technical expertise, marketing talent and sales skills, Kelleher is fluent in French, a language she enjoyed learning at CJ.
“I loved taking French and that’s what inspired me to use my language skills in my business career,” Kelleher reflected. “I’m thankful for that.”
Prior to her presentation, Kelleher said she hoped students would learn that things may not always go as you expect, and that’s OK.
“I wanted to share real life advice and not to be afraid to fail,” Kelleher said. “I’ve heard a lot of ‘nos’ but it’s true that if you keep persevering you will get there and meet your goals.”
