Meet campus director Shannon Meggert

“I love being a part of SAE Institute Nashville.

I joined SAE Institute in 2020 with over 12 years of experience in Higher Education. Prior to that I spent many years in an (unfulfilling) Account Management career in the Automotive industry. I found my home working in Education. Watching students learn and grow is by far my favorite part of what I do.”
