Megan Gillis is our new Academic Services Coordinator. She graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in 2010 and began working for the Eskasoni Band Council as the Economic Development Officer and the Native Employment Officer in 2020.  She worked at the Band Council for 11 years and while working there she realized her passion for youth and education.  

In September 2021 she started my Bachelor of Education program through St.FX.  The program is a part-time Cape Breton cohort with combined online and in-person evening classes.  When she saw the employment posting with MK she jumped at the opportunity to be able to work in the education field


Megan is the proud mother to her teenage daughter Reagan, who is also her biggest motivator.  Her daughter will be graduating from High School soon and is interested in becoming a Forensic Scientist.  They own 2  Australian shepherds (Memphis & Dallas) and 1 cat (Freyja).  In her free time, she enjoys watching tv shows, movies, listening to music and going to concerts.  Travelling is one of her favourite things to do and can’t wait to start doing it again.  After losing her dad to cancer in 2020 it changed her whole outlook on life.


"We get one chance here, make it count and be happy :) "
