Northwest Association for Blind Athletes is excited to introduce our newest board member, Megan Bishop

Image of Megan Bishop posing with her husband and two sons.Megan was first introduced to NWABA while searching for adaptive sports opportunities for her 9-year-old son, Sean, when she discovered Camp Spark in 2021(NWABA’s week-long youth camp). Sean had only ever spent the night away with his grandparents and Megan was hesitant to send him off for an entire week. However, Sean had no reservations. His excitement and further discussions with NWABA staff convinced his family to sign him up. Even before camp started, Sean was determined to show his independence as he prepared for camp. According to Megan, “There were so many amazing things that he experienced at Camp Spark, but also the lead up was amazing—he was so determined to do things independently, so he was prepared for camp. It was just so fantastic to see the growth in his independence even before he stepped foot there.” Since that first introduction, Sean has participated in Camp Spark for a second year, as well as many other NWABA sports and event activities.

As the Vice President of Finance & Business Operations for Comcast’s West Division, Megan leads a group of 50 staff members, overseeing the division Business Assurance, Security and Real Estate teams. Megan began her career at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Philadelphia, then joined Comcast in 2001, expanding her roles and responsibilities over a 20-year time span in Finance and Business Operations that has taken her from Philadelphia to California and then to Oregon where she was born and raised.

She was selected to participate in the Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT) Betsy Magness Leadership program in 2019 and is also a graduate of the WICT Rising Leaders Program and the Half the Sky Leadership Institute. She is an advisor to the WICT Pacific Northwest Chapter as well as an executive board member for Junior Achievement of OR/SW Washington. Megan graduated with a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Megan credits the combination of business leadership and personal experience as reasons for accepting the position on NWABA’s Board of Directors. “For me I look at this as an opportunity not only to give back by bringing my business and leadership experience to the conversation, but also my experience as a parent of a visually impaired child. I see firsthand the benefits of this organization and I can share that with the NWABA team and other board members, and give personal feedback from a different, but relevant perspective.”

Megan currently resides in Lake Oswego, Oregon, with her husband and two sons and when not at work, she enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, and watching the San Francisco Giants. We are happy to have Megan as part of our Board of Directors and look forward to her contributions. Please give Megan a warm NWABA welcome!
