Mariam G. MacGregor, M.S., worked with college student leaders at Syracuse University, Santa Clara University, and Metropolitan State College of Denver before serving as the school counselor and coordinator of leadership programs at an alternative high school in Colorado. While there, she received honorable mention for Counselor of the Year. Now, she’s a nationally recognized leadership consultant who works with schools (K–12 and higher education), nonprofit agencies, faith groups, and communities interested in developing meaningful, sustainable leadership efforts for kids, teens, and young adults.
Mariam was the youth volunteer trainer for Night Lights (a respite care program that serves families with kids with special needs) and EPIC Mentors (a program started by one of her sons at his elementary school that pairs peer mentors with kids with learning challenges). She founded Youthleadership.com (now mariammacgregor.com) to provide support to youth leaders and individuals working with them. She lives in Texas with her husband and three kind kids.
