Volunteer Member Spotlight on
WIFSFBA Volunteer Extraordinaire
When new members join WIFSFBA, they receive an official ‘Welcome’ email that has page links to member benefits at the various membership levels.
This email, and neatly laid out webpages, didn’t happen out of thin air. Megan Larsen, created and sent them, helping us streamline our member onboarding by providing a warm welcome.
Here's to a job well-done! We truly appreciate Megan's time, dedication and hard work!
Megan is a local Bay Area actress who most recently appeared in the Role Players Ensembles’ production of The Glass Menagerie (Laura Wingfield).
She has also performed in short films by various Bay Area artists such as the mixed-media short Saffron. She lent her voice to two characters in the online miniseries La Fontaine.
Megan has studied acting at several local schools, most notably the University of California - Berkeley where she minored in Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, as well as at A.C.T. Studio, and Film Acting Bay Area.
She recently shared with us her interest in getting involved with WIFSFBA:
“Finding your community as an artist (as we all know) is very important particularly within the screen arts. Not only are most projects a collaborative effort that we need a network of support to complete, but often we need mutual support to just keep going because making a living as an artist, of any kind, can be an uphill battle.
As a local Bay Area actor I was on a mission to find an organization or group that would provide me with an opportunity to be part of a film focused creative community. That's when I came across WIFSFBA.
I was extra intrigued because it had a focus on empowering women's creative work.
I knew right away that once there was an opportunity to volunteer in some capacity I would. In volunteering to help create the membership welcome packets I had a chance to personally get to know a few of the women on the board and it gave me the satisfaction of knowing that I too can help with the development of WIFSFBA.
I look forward to seeing the continued growth of this community and will definitely be volunteering to help again in the future in whatever way I can."
