Welcome Megan!

As we start a new year, Bright Lights is excited to announce the addition of Megan Ockander to the staff as Development Specialist. Megan brings experience in fund development, special events and education to the Bright Lights team. Though originally from Austin, Texas, she has been a Lincolnite for the past 14 years along with her husband and four children. She will be working in coordination with Lori Paulsen, Executive Director, to meet the fundraising goals of Bright Lights. 

When asked about her new role, Ockander commented, “I’m very excited to be joining the incredible Bright Lights team. Bright Lights is doing amazing work for students in the Lincoln community and impacting their ability to access STEAM-focused summer camps by exploring topics and activities that kids are enthusiastic to learn about. I look forward to being a part of an organization that makes learning fun, exciting and accessible to everyone.”
