Behind the Screen: Meet Meghan Earle

Behind the Screen: Meet Meghan Earle

“Behind the Screen” is a spotlight series that introduces the people of Kinduct. This instalment features Meghan Earle. 

What’s your role at Kinduct and how long have you been with the company?

I’m a Product Manager and have been with Kinduct for almost two years.

Where did you go to school and what did you take?

I went to Acadia University where I played varsity soccer and completed a Bachelor of Kinesiology with Honours.

How did that ready you for a job at Kinduct?

My degree focused on exercise science and strength and conditioning, which aligns with many of users. I also have a background playing and coaching sports. Both experiences, in different ways, have given me a useful perspective of our product. I also had the opportunity to use Kinduct at Acadia during a research course, so I was familiar with the platform before getting hired.

What’s your favourite thing about working for Kinduct?

Contributing to conversations that help solve problems for top sport organizations and health-care providers. It’s also awesome to have colleagues that are forward-thinking, innovative, and care so much about what they do.

What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on since being hired?

While it’s not really a specific project, I really enjoyed the time I spent researching sports science and learning more about our clients’ needs from a practical standpoint. It’s so cool to see how and why teams actually use data and analytics in their day to day.

Which sport have you always wanted to try/play?

Curling! I grew up as a big curling fan but I’ve never actually tried it. I have some friends who are curlers, so it’s on my list of things to do this winter.

Who’s your biggest role model?

My biggest role models would be athletes and coaches such as Megan Rapinoe and Becky Hammon, who are both actively standing for gender equity in sport.

Where’s the first place you would travel to if you won the lottery?

Greece! I think it would be a beautiful place to visit with a lot of beaches and hikes, a rich history, and plenty of great food.
