“Wittenberg empowered me to carve my own way.”

Megan McCann ’93

CEO & Founder, McCann Partners

“When I started at Wittenberg, I had this notion that I wanted to be a broadcast journalist, an anchor on the evening news. English classes were the ones I enjoyed most. I wrote for The Torch and got an internship with a TV news channel.

But after graduation, I started working for an I.T. firm and fell in love with the industry. Today, I run my own I.T. recruitment firm. In some ways, what I do has nothing to do with my English major, but I spend an exorbitant amount of time writing. That’s the beauty of Wittenberg; it teaches you how to learn and how to communicate. It empowered me to carve my own way.”

Megan McCann ’93, in addition to running her own company, is Co-Founder of ARA, a national organization that seeks to promote women in technology and leadership.
