“My favorite part of my job is when I see a positive change take place in the families of Union County. I go into homes, on a daily basis, to help people overcome challenging situations, and although at times it is emotionally draining, at the end of the day it is richly rewarding.” 

 

Megan serves the Union County Health Department as a home visitor/ family service worker in the Help Me Grow division.  Her role in Help Me Grow is to educate Union County families, and help them create a healthy, educational, and safe environment for their children.

Megan spends her days assisting families in keeping up with health screenings, encouraging healthy behavior, providing resources, and making referrals on a weekly basis.  She enjoys the part of her job that requires her to work through problems.  By helping families, she gets to see positive results, and gets to celebrate achievements with these individuals, that she’s invested her time in. In her own words, “Helping families and children achieve their potential and believe in themselves is the most rewarding aspect of my job.”
