Walsh, who recently resides in Green Bay, Wis., is a 2011 graduate of UW-Milwaukee in international relations. She also received her Master of Business Administration from Alverno College in 2016 and her Doctorate of Education in education, leadership, and organizational change from Baylor in 2022. She has worked at St. Norbert for almost a year.

In the past year, Walsh and her team piloted the college’s internship program, which was one tremendous task. Also, Walsh led the implementation of a new advising model for students, which helps one hundred percent of first-year students get oriented with the college, select classes and learn about on-campus resources on advisement day. Both Walsh and her team hope this model will positively affect students’ journey through college and also increase the retention rate of students.

As one of her colleagues put it: “Meghan is a go-getter who is not afraid to dive in and learn as she leads. Her passion to drive our collaborations around campus always has the students at the forefront! She has played an important role in leading the new Academic Advising and Career Development Center.”

Since Walsh just moved to Green Bay in the past year, she hopes to be more involved in the Green Bay community. While Walsh lived in Milwaukee, she was an active and engaged citizen. She volunteered on nonprofit boards such as Meta House, an organization serving women recovering from addiction. She also worked with The New State, a theater in Milwaukee that is being renovated into a studio and restaurant to be a music venue for all ages, especially young people.

Walsh and her husband Sean have an 18-month-old named Mathew.
