National Leadership Program, Spring 2019
Megghan Duffy was a Nonprofit Management Apprentice in RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program for Spring 2019. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for and with people with disabilities.
Duffy graduated from Fitchburg State University in May 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Psychological Science with a minor in Neuroscience, Behavior and Cognition. In the past, Duffy had worked for a nonprofit organization called LEAD, which works to end the stigmas against mental health. Duffy joined RespectAbility to help fight the stigmas against people with disabilities and to further her learning about nonprofit advocacy, philanthropy and fundraising. She also aims to learn more about how she can change the way the world views people with disabilities.
Duffy has had experience working with individuals with disabilities when she worked at a nursing home while in high school. At her technical high school, she studied in a Health Assisting shop and did clinical rotations at the nursing home, at a kindergarten and in a middle school nurse’s office. In these locations, she was introduced to numerous individuals from different backgrounds and learned how to help with their needs and accommodations.
