Meaghan McIntyre is from Menahkwesk (Saint John), and she continues to spend as many days as possible on the beaches of the city’s west side. She is of Mi’kmaq and Métis descent. Since 2018, she has been the Indigenous Employment and Career Advisor with the Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre.

Meaghan is a certified Career Development Practitioner and has an undergraduate degree in Psychology (with a Criminal Justice minor) from UNB Saint John. She has taken courses at Cornell University and is currently enrolled in the MWC’s Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Counselling. At the MWC, Meaghan works closely with the Indigenous Experiential Learning Coordinator to support Indigenous students who are working to gain skills in pursuit of their goals, guiding students to reflect on their gifts and passions, supporting them as they plan for the future, and helping them to proceed through their studies with a clear understanding of what they would most like to achieve during their university years.

Previously in her career, Meaghan worked in social services, supporting children and youth through numerous organizations, including Impact Youth (Moncton), Oakhill Treatment Ranch (Edmonton), and Catholic Social Services (Edmonton). Immediately before coming to the MWC, she worked for three years as an Employment Counsellor for the Métis Nation of Alberta. Through her experience, Meaghan has come to understand and approach employment and education as important social justice issues for Indigenous peoples – and as systems that can provide Indigenous peoples with levels of protection against the functions of settler colonial society. She is committed to supporting and advising Indigenous students as they learn to navigate and use these systems.
