Staff Spotlight: Megan Shields

Hi there! I’m Megan.

Lover of all things girly, gardening, and Jesus, you can call me MegTay! Pretty much everyone around here does! As you probably already know, our owner’s name is also Megan, so things can get quite confusing. Plus, who doesn’t love a good nickname?
I was born and raised for half of my life in Newnan, Ga - just south of Atlanta. When I was 10 years old, my parents packed up all of our things and crossed that Georgia-Alabama border to the great city of Auburn. We never looked back and I am extremely blessed to have called this place home for 12 years.

I am one of three girls (I know, my poor dad), and am lucky enough to call one of those sisters my twin. The three of us are extremely close and would do just about anything for each other. I am a firm believer that laughter is the best medicine and I never have to worry about that around them. My sweet parents have been married for over 26 years and are the best leaders of our family. I love them so much!

I am currently a senior at Auburn University majoring in Human Development and Family Studies. Being in the human helping field, I LOVE getting to know people! One of the biggest reasons I applied for a job at Scarlet & Gold was because I truly just love talking to people. I actually got to S&G by seeing on their Instagram account that they were hiring. How cool is technology?! My new job as the Office Manager has blessed me with so many opportunities, encounters and friendships that I am extremely thankful for. My day-to-day never quite looks the same and that is what I love about it. A big part of my job is to respond to emails and make sure that all of our orders get to where they are supposed to be. I love helping people in any way that I can, and packing orders to send out to our customers is such a blessing to me. I also am very passionate about our retail store that we have in Auburn. I love meeting the different customers that come in daily!
If you know me, you know that I believe that joy is contagious. I believe that through my work I can show people joy through grace and that is why I love what I do so much!

Customer service is extremely important to me and if we ever email, I want you to know that you are being heard and what you say is important to me. Our customers are a big reason why I get to do what I love every day so how could I not be thankful for them?
What fills me up the most at work is the people I get to work alongside every day. A team of loyal, hardworking and encouraging women. I thank God every single day for the opportunity to do life with them!

That’s all for now! Let’s email sometime! :)
