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!
