    Megan Mulholland, APRDirector of Marketing and Communications for the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region

    While growing up in Marshfield, Wis., the youngest child of four and only girl, I learned about perseverance, compassion, athletics, nature and creativity from my family, friends, and neighbors.

    After graduating from University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a double major in English and mass communications, I worked in radio news and newspaper journalism for seven years. Then, for more than 16 years, I managed all external communications for ThedaCare, leading all public relations, media relations, crisis communications, social media and the web for the healthcare system. Four years ago, I became the director of marketing and communications for the Community Foundation, leading all strategic communications and marketing for the nonprofit organization and its five geographic affiliates.

    I earned my Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) designation in 2009 and was named communicator of the year in 2015 by the Public Relations Society of America-Northeast Wisconsin Chapter.

    I am a single parent, raising my son, Brandon, who is studying welding at Fox Valley Technical College and my daughter Madison, a sophomore at Appleton North. We have two dogs and two cats, and I volunteer with Saving Paws Animal Rescue and with the recently created The Monthlies Project.

    This November I will meet my goal of visiting all 50 states by age 50. The next challenge: all seven continents. In addition, I love reading, writing, exploring the outdoors, and cheering on the Minnesota Vikings.
