Megan Reed

This course was designed by Megan Reed and Butler Tech with the goal of providing high school career advisors information and resources to effectively guide students through their career choices. 

Megan Reed is in her 19th year as an educator, and she is currently a Career Specialist in Butler Tech’s Workforce Services Department. Being a Career Specialist has allowed her to explore career myths and truths of helping students find success in the current labor market. She has found the information enlightening and looks for opportunities to share this information with others, especially educators.

Her other roles in education have included being a Family & Consumer Sciences Instructor to middle school and high school students, Online Course Creator/Instructor, Curriculum Specialist, and currently a Career Specialist in Butler Tech’s Workforce Services Department.

Megan is interested in helping others to learn about career advising and identifying opportunities to help students obtain career maturity. Megan was educated at Miami University, Ohio (Bachelor’s degree) and Nova Southeastern University (Master’s degree). Outside of work Megan has strong commitments to her family (husband and three kids), her God, her health…and desserts!
