As a database consultant, Megan Moorehead is 501 Commons' primary internal Salesforce Administrator and provides Salesforce consulting to nonprofits. While documenting processes, running assessments, and providing training and consulting, she also supports the Technology Volunteer program, including Plan IT, 501 Talks Tech, and other projects. She joined 501 Commons in September 2015, originally providing administrative support across the organization.
Megan has grown up in the Greater Seattle Area and has no plans to abandon the spectacular Pacific Northwest anytime soon. She studied at Western Washington University in Bellingham, focusing on Literature and Writing Studies, ultimately earning a Bachelor’s Degree in late 2014. One of her most memorable jobs involved her participation in a short four-month program at Walt Disney World in Florida, driving a boat and spieling puns as a Jungle Cruise Skipper. Making the leap to the nonprofit sector combines her administrative and technology skills with her desire to empower people to better understand technology and to foster goodwill in the community.
Beyond the professional realm, Megan enjoys photography, lots of games (board games, card games, video games, you name it!), and verbal sparring with her family. Additionally, she participated in Community Emergency Response Team training in an effort to take part in disaster aid and preparedness.
Fun Fact: Megan is slightly double-jointed and has an identical twin sister.
