Megan Ryan

Executive Director

    I began my journey at Ironwood in the summer of 2007. In college, I studied psychology, mental health, and business. After earning a Bachelors degree, I was searching for fulfilling work with youth. An opportunity to work for Ironwood came to me at the perfect time in my life. I quickly fell in love with the program, the people and most of all the mission!

    I have enjoyed being a witness to the many incredible transformations, and family reunification over the years. I have supported Ironwood in many aspects and in various roles, but have primarily managed administrative and health services. As the Compliance Director, I oversee licensing, consult with management, maintain policies and provide record management and system administration services. Although my work is behind the scenes, I know that my contributions are important and are serving a higher purpose. Ironwood is a special place and I have intentionally chosen to maintain a long term relationship with this unique and successful organization.

    I am a Maine native and enjoy the beautiful changing seasons, peace and lifestyle that Maine has to offer. I feel grateful to be raising my two sons here. I enjoy entertaining, photography, interior design, boating and most of all spending time with my family. One of my favorite quotes is, “I alone cannot change the world but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa
