Key Note Speaker
Co-founder and CEO of Evereve and
our Keynote Speaker
In 1997, shortly after becoming a mom for the first time, Megan, entrepreneur at heart, dreamed up the Evereve (formally known as Hot Mama) concept after a disastrous shopping trip to the mall. Becoming a mom had changed her life forever and she couldn’t believe that a clothing store hadn’t been created to make fashion accessible to busy moms like her. For five years, Megan dreamed about building a retail brand that would help moms’ look and feel their very best; a brand that would also remind moms to think about their beauty, remember their dreams, and pursue their passions.
In 2004, Megan stopped dreaming and made her dream a reality. She took a giant “leap of faith”, along with her husband, Mike, and opened the first Hot Mama store in Edina, Minnesota. In August 2014, Hot Mama became Evereve.
Megan is the co-founder and CEO of Evereve, a contemporary retail brand that inspires moms to realize embrace their power and beauty. Today Evereve has sixty stores, coast to coast, and has very aggressive growth plans. Last year, Megan received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for the Upper Midwest territory. She is serves as a Governor for Opportunity International, a microfinance charity providing access to savings, microloans, insurance and training for people in developing countries.
Megan grew up in Glenview, Illinois and graduated from North Park University in Chicago, Illinois with a degree in Elementary education. Prior to starting Hot Mama, she was a third grade teacher. Megan lives in Edina, Minnesota with her husband, Mike, and their two children, Allison (18) and Ryan (15).
