Megan Kinney: Social Entrepreneurism

Megan Kinney – “Soo-cial Entrepreneurism: How microenterprise can spur innovation and growth in Sault Ste. Marie”

Megan Kinney

Megan Kinney is a recent arrival to the Sault from Colorado. She was born in Michigan and grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio area. She has a BA in French from the Ohio State University, and a Master’s in Information Science from the University of Michigan. Megan has worked in libraries for 30 years and in four states: Ohio, Michigan, Colorado, and Arizona. She has also written and implemented grants for every organization in which she has worked. In 2017-18, she was an Americorps VISTA volunteer in southwest Colorado. She has been coming to the Sault to visit her spouse’s family for almost 20 years. In that time, she has watched it evolve into quite a petri dish of innovation and social action. As a result, she is inspired to dig right in and roll her sleeves up, thus, her talk about microenterprise and social entrepreneurism in the Sault. In her free time, Megan enjoys hanging out and hiking with her husband and three dogs, swimming, biking, and listening to podcasts.
