ABOUT ME

Even though her college major was in health care administration, Meagan English knew she definitely didn’t want to work in a nursing home. “I was a bit afraid of them,” she admits. But after completing an Administrator in Training program as part of an internship, she was hooked on the profession. “I loved doing something different every day, and I especially loved the people,” she says. “I realized senior care wasn’t what it used to be.”

Over the first 15 years of her career, Meagan served as administrator at three Marquis campuses, then led the Marquis at Home business line before being promoted to Director of Operations, with oversight over several facilities. In 2014, she fulfilled a dream to start her own executive coaching company, preparing aspiring and established clients to lead with authenticity and compassion.

Now back at Marquis and leveraging all those experiences as the company’s first Chief People Officer, Meagan is responsible for succession planning for the executive team, identifying rising leaders through the Ascend and internship programs, and the recruitment division. “I’m working to engage the next generation of leaders, ensuring our business lines are in the most capable hands as we go into the future,” she says. “I love nurturing people on their career path, and seeing them succeed.”

Meagan holds a bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administration from Oregon State University, and is currently completing a Masters in Management Strategy and Leadership from Michigan State University. She’s an accomplished speaker on topics including emotional intelligence, team building and values-based leadership, and is also the best-selling author of the book, “Uninvited Guest: The Art of living with Anxiety, Stress and Overwhelm.”

Time outside of work is mostly spent with her husband watching the athletic pursuits of their two children, and she’s a long-time supporter of youth sports programs. She’s also actively engaged with the Vital Life Foundation, and was an early champion of the Backpack to School program.
