Megan O’Roark is the Special Projects Director for CNM. Joining the organization in 2015, she is currently responsible for supporting CNM’s Learning & Leadership functions of Education, Consulting, and Community Impact and Equity Initiatives through her work on programmatic operation. A self-professed data geek, Megan enjoys the process of complex problem solving and co-collaborating with all types of nonprofit leaders to create real and positive systemic change.

Her love for community service work began at an early age when she accompanied her grandparents to their volunteer shifts as museum docents. She has spent her career working and volunteering in the Nashville nonprofit sector for health care, performing arts, and human services organizations, and serves on the board for the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra.

In addition to her day-to-day responsibilities, Megan enjoys any opportunity to facilitate with groups seeking to identify, address, or solve an organizational issue. She is trained in Technology of Participation (ToP)® Facilitation Methods. Megan is also licensed to offer consulting services through the Standards for Excellence® program.

Megan holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and German from Sewanee: The University of the South, and a Master of Education in Nonprofit Leadership from Belmont University. When not at CNM, you can find Megan playing violin with the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra, practicing yoga, traveling, or attending concerts, operas, musicals, and/or some kind of sporting event with her husband, Darwin.
