Beth is a pro at investor pitches, having seen hundreds during her time as a lawyer. She is also a badass negotiator and can explain to you in words that actually make sense what all of those crazy terms are in that contract, like indemnification and liquidity event. She thinks dreams come in one size: BIG.
Beth spent the earlier part of her career building a successful legal career advising and influencing the most powerful countries and companies in the world at the World Bank and prestigious law firms. For the past two years, Beth honed a unique specialty advising corporate entities and investment firms on sophisticated transactional insurance (yes, she is that smart).
Beth received her law degree from American University, Washington College of Law where she earned the Order of the Coif – a distinction reserved for the top 5% of the graduating class. For her undergraduate education, Beth attended Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
In between her academic and legal pursuits, Beth found time to travel around the world to volunteer and make people’s lives better. She spent two years as a volunteer teacher in Micronesia and Malawi. While abroad, she organized a local women’s group to encourage empowerment in young females and advised students on opportunities to obtain further education.
Despite her busy schedule, Beth somehow makes time for biking and yoga and finds continual inspiration by listening to every single one of Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations. When she isn’t busy helping women take over the world, you can find her with her family and making as much time as possible to dance with her baby girl.
In addition to helping women achieve their ambitions through Empower Equity Partners, Megan is a financial consultant for two of the premier women-led companies in the Twin Cities: Take 12 and Louise Gray.
From Wall Street to Fortune 500 titans in the Twin Cities, Megan has spent over a decade leading companies to more profitable futures. She began her career as a maven of finance working with hedge funds and financial service providers in NYC. Megan brought her talents to Minnesota by joining General Mills, where she led the turnaround of several brands that were declining before her arrival. Megan is an expert in marketing, strategy, and finance. Her next role took her to Target where she continued to lead teams through difficult problems and took on some of Target’s largest negotiations.
Doubling down on her education, Megan graduated from Georgetown with bachelors’ degrees in Finance and International Business. She also has a Master’s in Business from Harvard Business School (“HBS”).
Megan is a long-time advocate for women. During her time at Merrill Lynch, Megan spearheaded the development of a women’s network with the aim of bringing more women into the world of finance. At Harvard, she took on an independent study and produced a paper on how companies can help executive working mothers thrive.
Megan is an avid yogi, cyclist, and a disturbingly good cook. Growing up in Canada, England, France and the U.S., Megan has an insatiable love for travel and incredible ability to adapt to whatever changes life presents. She is a master in interior design, a natural extension of her ability to turn the mundane into the spectacular. When Megan isn’t busy running companies or helping women take over the world, she spends her time with the loves of her life: her two beautiful children, husband, and their dog Kober.
