Introducing Milestone’s New Executive Assistant, Megan Van Rentergem!

Posted on October 21, 2020

We’re excited to announce that Megan Van Rentergem has joined the Milestone team as executive assistant. We asked her a few questions about her life and background. Here’s what she had to say.

Where did you attend school, and what did you study?

I went to the State University of New York Fredonia. I majored in communication and minored in business administration.

What led you to Milestone?

I previously worked in commercial real estate and ultimately decided that my heart was not in that industry. The work Milestone does is very meaningful and helpful to their clients, and I was attracted to the idea of working for a company whose main goal is to help people.

How would you describe your job?

As executive assistant, I help the Milestone team prioritize its objectives and be a champion of good ideas and the best execution. I act as an ally and resource for the team by providing direct communication and support.

Share something unique about your life.

I did competitive gymnastics until high school. Now I enjoy running as a stress relief. I lived in Pittsburgh for the past six years and just moved back to Buffalo in February to be closer to family after my husband and I had our first baby in July 2019.

What is it like to start a new job in the midst of a global pandemic? 

I feel very fortunate to have found a new career opportunity amid all the craziness!

Join us in welcoming Megan to the team!
