Megan Miller is always getting after it. What “it” is and what “it” requires might be something different every day. During the work week, it might mean managing president and founder Kathleen Lucente’s obscenely busy schedule, a superpower few humans likely possess let alone exceed at.
It might mean maintaining Red Fan’s website or supporting the agency’s marketing and new business initiatives. It might mean being the first face new clients see when they step into the Red Fan office. It might mean brewing the first pot of coffee for the day so the rest of us can get our caffeine fix. It might mean taking the time to let the entire staff know that she’s always available to support them with research, a new perspective or, on particularly stressful days, a much-needed “Everything is going to be fine.”
On the weekends, “it” is most likely a good old-fashioned Zilker Park dog-watching extravaganza, a time-honored Austin tradition in which Megan invests ample time. She doesn’t actually own a dog though, a decision that is very much intentional. We believe the exact quote was, “All the snuggles, none of the responsibility.”
It’s probably for the best though, because it means she gets to spend that time making our lives just a bit easier. The pure range of Megan’s role and responsibilities at Red Fan requires a proportional range of skills and talent that doesn’t come along everyday. Megan’s ability to support the agency, its leaders and staff as well as its clients is not lost on anyone who’s been around her for even a short amount of time.
A Georgian by birth but a Texan by trade, Megan moved to Austin to pursue a career in corporate communications and marketing. It was a daunting move, as it is for many, but was perhaps made a tad easier by the notion that it was always her destiny. According to family folklore, nearly every member of her immediate family went to UT to not only get a college degree, but to find true love. Cheers to Megan finding both, plus a killer career on Helms Street.
