Class of: 2013
As an undergraduate student at Carroll College, Megan Olszewski combined the Community Health major with a Business Administration minor to prepare her for a career in the health administration. During her time in Helena, she gained programmatic development skills inside and outside of the classroom by participating in service-learning projects, managing the football team, becoming a Community Advisor, serving on the Presidential Search Committee, and co-chairing the annual IMPACT campaign her senior year.
Carroll College provided me with the professional confidence and education I needed to seek an internship with a nationally recognized residential health facility, Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch (YBGR). It was such a great fit! Tey called me right before my last undergraduate final and asked if I would interview for an open administration position!
After graduating with the Class of 2013, Megan started in June with YBGR as a Human Resources Representative. Her responsibilities encompass many aspects of health administration including volunteer and internship coordinating, employee recruitment, human resource management, and developing media for publication. Within two months of employment, Megan had the opportunity to lead the design of an advertisement recruiting a Psychiatrist for YBGR. It will be published for 6 months in The Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, which circulates nationally to over 9,000 professionals.
The accomplishment of being tasked with such a significant project so quickly is a testimony to the ability of Carroll College to develop exceptionally capable professionals, and I am incredibly blessed to be one of them.
