⇝ Hi, there! I'm Megan.
As the Principal Consultant + Facilitator of Cresta Solutions, I work with growth-minded leaders and leadership teams who face complex problems and who desire breakthrough results. I work with leaders who want to make a positive difference in their teams, organizations, and communities.
I am also an educator and a coach. A leader and an entrepreneur. A mother and a meal-prepper.
To learn about what energizes me, how I can help you reach your goals, and what body of water I consider to be my soul mate, check out my About page.Learn Megan's story
OK, let me guess...
Are you purpose-driven? Are you are passionately committed to making a positive difference in your team, organization, or community?
Is not having access to the support and resources you need holding you back from leading real change?
If so, I'm here to help. I want you to feel confident that you can deliver breakthrough projects and lasting change.
How my approach is different.
As an adult educator at heart, I prepare and empower growing leaders at purpose-driven organizations to get breakthrough results on their projects — now and in the future. To get them there, I take a fresh approach to project leadership. I layer on that a commitment to coaching and skill-building that focuses on:
- creative problem-solving, and
- helping human beings manage changes for the benefit of other human beings.
What I offer.
I offer a variety of services to help leaders (and aspiring leaders!) meet their goals:
- Through facilitation, I help your team connect, build awareness about collaboratively solving complex challenges, and get innovative solutions (in a fun way!).
- Through consulting and educational programs, I help your team learn how to lead strategic changes and meet their goals.
- Through leadership coaching, I challenge you and support you so that you achieve deep growth and results.

"I have always left [Megan's] trainings a much better professional."
"Megan delves deep into the issues and people's concerns. I have been amazed at how she understands the needs of everyone around her. She does her research and comes to every session prepared. She then works on developing tools to help the project succeed. I have often been amazed at the tools that she utilizes in any project. I have always left her trainings a much better professional. What makes her unique is that she does not always need to have the answer, but she utilizes the opinions of others and her own to develop solutions. What I have been most impressed by is her empathy. As a leader, she truly listens and always makes you feel valued."
- Raul Fernandez, Assistant Director of Community Standards, Illinois Institute of Technology

"Megan knows how to lead training, facilitate meetings, and help teams accomplish their goals."
"Megan is a true professional! Whether presenting in front of hundreds of people or groups of 10 or 20, Megan knows how to lead training, facilitate meetings, and help teams accomplish their goals. I have seen her effectively work in large ballrooms, small training and conference rooms, and over Zoom — before Zoom was as well-known as it is today! I have served on a team that Megan has led and I have worked side-by-side with her as a peer. She is always thoughtful, warm, engaging, knowledgeable, and inclusive!"
