Bio: Megan Kirsh, Co-consultant

With a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and almost a decade of experience co-leading her family’s 4th generation business, Megan brings a valuable vantage point to her work with Lucid Legacy.

As a Family Business Consultant, Megan blends her academic study of Family Systems theory and Pragmatic/Experiential Therapy principles with her own first-hand experiences navigating conflict management and communication challenges in her family’s business.

As a Mental Health Coach, Megan approaches individuals from the perspective that one’s emotional well-being depends not so much upon the complications that life throws our way, but rather the effective contemplation and subsequent discourse we are able to harness and execute in order to navigate quandaries successfully.

The result of Megan’s experience is an open, collaborative, fully supportive and developmental relationship – one where specific goals are identified, natural strengths are promoted, and the tools and resources necessary for a successful outcome are provided.

During her tenure at her family’s almost 100-year-old business, she developed into the role of Vice President of Sales and contributing Board Member. As a part of the company’s management team, Megan provided leadership in the areas of strategic planning, targeted account development and process improvement. Outside of the company, she served as an officer on the Management Council for the American Foundry Society, and as the Chairperson for the shared interest group, Future Leaders of Metalcasting.

Megan earned her Master’s degree from Northern Illinois University, working under the direct supervision of Dr. Brent Atkinson, the principle architect of Pragmatic/Experiential Therapy. She has worked with individuals, couples, adolescents and families, and provided crisis intervention and family reunification services in collaboration with law enforcement.

Megan lives in Madison, WI, and enjoys traveling, music, reading, yoga and a nature-inspired lifestyle. She and her husband Elliot share their home with a pair of four-legged friends, Peanut and Parker.
