We are proud to present our previous years Women of Willamette Scholarship winners.
First Place- Meghan Seifert
Meghan Seifert was the 2019 Cathy Stoller WOW Scholarship winner. This scholarship allowed Meghan to cut back on work and get more involved in school as well as reduce her debt coming out of school into the workforce. She was able to lead the reproductive health and justice club, tutor students and attended a conference on trauma informed care that was largely geared toward reproductive healthcare providers, which is what she aspires to be.
Meghan is excited about learning how to be a critical care nurse and started her job as an ICU nurse at Peacehealth Sacredheart on February 20. She's in a training program for new grads with her main focus on learning how she can provide the best care to patients who are critically ill and build the foundations of her nursing practice.
Her short term goals are to grow as a nurse, meditate every day and run a half marathon. A long term goal of hers is to go back to school to become a certified nurse midwife. She would like to live on a few acres of land and create a sustainable living space with a community center of some sort. She loves living in a vibrant, dynamic ecosystem, that we can enjoy in the form of produce, wine and beautiful scenery. She also loves the closeness of the community in the Willamette valley and is grateful to be sponsored by her dear friend Kelly Kidneigh, who is a member of WOW.
