Megan Matsen

What’s up people reading this bio.  I’m Megan.  I have taken a long, twisting, looping, winding path to get to North Metro Flex Academy, and I am SO very happy to be here.  My education has included 3.14159 stints at the University of MN (Twin Cities) spanning from 1995 to 2016 where I started off on an unknown path to Civil Engineering to Mathematics to Design to FINALLY deciding to get an Individualized Studies degree in Political Science, Film and Management.  In 2008, I moved to Vancouver, British Columbia and had the time of my life going to Vancouver Film School where I made some lifelong friendships and connections.  I had high hopes of being able to live and work in Vancouver, but that did not work out, so I moved back to MN.  Life has been a consistent and persistent struggle for me, but I think everything happens for a reason, and I think these struggles have prepared me well for things to come.  I am really happy where I am presently, and I am so excited about what the future holds.

I’m currently working to get my 501c non-profit status for my film production company, and I plan to attend Metro State University in the fall for a Master of Arts in Individualized Studies with my areas of focus being Nonprofit Leadership and Management, Advocacy and Political Leadership and Social Studies Teacher Preparation Grades 5-12.

For fun I like to spend time with friends and family.  I’m a huge film, music and sportsball lover (especially the NBA and watching hockey at all age levels).  I am a lover of the game of disc golf/frisbee golf, frolf; in the recent past I ran a women’s disc golf league.  I’m also getting back into things I liked/loved doing as a child or wish I had started as a child including martial arts, dance, piano and guitar.  Finally, I am a firm believer in mindfulness and meditation and practice them daily.
