What’s in a bio

I am doing a little presentation later in the year and have to send a bio to the conference.  I was looking into my files for a bio and came across this one.  It accompanied a piece on The Catalyst Project by my friend Jon Giganti.  If you haven’t read his work, please do!  You’ll enjoy it thoroughly!

In reading the bio I sent Jon I realized it’s pretty cool to look back and do some self reflection.  Have you ever written a short bio?  Do it!  It’s a fun experience and will teach you a lot about where you’ve been, what you’re doing and where you’re going!

This is the bio:

Megan Ellis has been in the nonprofit world for over six years translating a background in economics and special events into development, fundraising, and outreach.  Currently Megan is redeveloping and redesigning the Development and Outreach department of the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Franklin County (CASA-FC).  Her role with CASA-FC includes engaging community and business leaders, corporations, foundations, and community members to help support, financially and through awareness the innocent child victims of abuse and neglect in Franklin and contiguous counties.
Megan’s drive and work ethic transcends the office walls into her personal life.  She is a competitive CrossFit athlete and enjoys each day’s new challenges and triumphs athletically and recognizes the value in struggle because it brings you one step closer to success.  As dedicated as she is to her athletic adventures, Megan is also equally passionate and dedicated to her new role as a wife and stepmom.  Her goal is to teach others how to take their lives to the next level through a positive attitude and never ending drive!
