Q&A with Meg…
Do you have a nickname?
Most people call me Meg.
Where did you grow up and how did that shape you as a person?
I grew up in Ventura, CA where I had a very family-oriented community. Growing up in Venture taught me the importance of having a community that takes care of one another and supports each other.
What inspired you to choose to work at GH Sports?
I gained a interest for running and swimming when I was in elementary school and I have carried that through to now. I want to share my interest and help others while also learning more about the sports myself.
What has been the most unusual or interesting job you’ve had?
The most interesting job I have had was working in a special education classroom. This is where I found my love for teaching and working with special education programs.
What are some things you’ve done at GH so far that have surprised you?
So far I have spent time learning more about gait analysis and the dynamics of shoes that I didn’t know about. It has surprised me to learn how much can vary from one customer’s gait to another.
Why did you choose to attend Cal Poly and what excites you most about your studies?
I have always had an interest in teaching children. When I began looking into colleges, I discovered Cal Poly’s Liberal Studies and Child Development programs. They are very interactive and I will gain a lot of first-hand experience this way.
