Just the Bona Fides:
In 1992, Megan graduated from Fort Walton Beach High School, home of the Vikings. From there, she went on to The University of Florida, where she graduated with honors, in 1996, earning a B.A. in English and minor in Secondary Education.
From 1997 - 1999, Megan lived in Ponce, Puerto Rico, where she taught Drama, Public Speaking, and English Literature at the Caribbean School.
From 1999 - 2005, Megan lived and worked in San Diego, California, where she began corporate life at a start-up called Edvision Corporation. After early promotions to the management team, Megan led the creation of reading and language arts curriculum and assessment tools for 4 years. Feeling like there was more opportunity outside of the corporate world, Megan headed to law school.
From 2005 - 2008, Megan attended the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where she earned numerous awards and scholarships and graduated in 2008, with Great Distinction and Order of the Coif. In addition, while at McGeorge, Megan met and married her amazing husband, Andrew Schouten.
After law, school, Andrew and Megan returned to San Diego to begin their legal careers. From 2008 - 2012, Megan was an associate at Best, Best & Krieger, LLP. In 2012, she transitioned to an associate position at Young, Minney & Corr, LLP, where she made partner in 2017.
In 2019 Megan launched The Law Offices of Megan M. Moore, where she continued representing her public school clients. After two successful years in solo practice, Megan decided to pivot into a career where she could use her listening, advocacy, and education skills to inspire growth and change in others.
December 2020 saw the birth of Megan Moore, Inc., through which Megan supports people and organizations with the power of the right question so they can accelerate their own evolution.
What clients have to say:
I met Megan at a leadership retreat and was instantly drawn to her engaging personality and approach to wellness. During individualized life coaching, her compelling and dynamic methods and techniques gave me a way out of lifelong traps of workaholism. Megan is excellent at asking just the right questions that lead to seeing things in a whole new way, which helped me let go of my old habits and gave me time for myself and my family! Through visualization of my outcomes, she led me through a series of thought processes that built confidence to set boundaries and to lead my team well. A great takeaway from my time with Megan is having an imaginary Champion, who helps me stay focused on my solo projects. I highly recommend Megan as a life coach when needing to make important life and work changes for improving self-care.

I had the answers; I just didn't have the right questions.
Megan coached me through some very difficult life decisions involving my career, my home and my health. I appreciated her no nonsense, direct and compassionate approach. After my coaching program was completed, my life was completely transformed! I was set up for a new pathway. A pathway to more joy, more success, divine right living space, & less stress in all areas of my life. Megan was so skilled at asking the right questions to challenge thought patterns and beliefs that no longer served me. I had a few A-HA moments because her questions guided me to uncover hidden truths, hidden fears, beliefs and blocks. I now find myself using some of her strategies when new challenges arise. So grateful for this coaching experience. It was a positive and insightful experience that changed my life. I no longer feel stuck. I feel empowered to create the life of my dreams...and see evidence that it is possible.

Meg is a skilled, caring coach! She was an invaluable guide in helping me identify and work through (what I had perceived to be) barriers to my success, and she consistently held me capable to achieving my outcomes. The insights I gained through the coaching process have endured and have become incorporated into my daily life. If you desire to activate the limitless possibilities in your life and transform your “ideas” about success and fulfillment into tangible results, I highly recommend coaching with Meg.

Megan helped me to better focus on what I was looking for in my career. If you are contemplating a professional pivot or need some help deciding what path pursue in your career, then I recommend you contact Megan Moore for an individual coaching session.
~ Greg Forest, Wheatland Union High School District Board Trustee
I was a bit skeptical about working with an executive coach, but Megan quickly turned me into a convert. Megan was extremely skilled at asking tough questions; enabling me to see through my own biases and eliciting deep self-reflection. She empowered me to rise to every challenge and held me accountable for achieving my goals. Megan’s coaching was invaluable. I gained an incredible amount of confidence and clarity in my business and learned to identify the barriers and key performance issues that have been holding me back. With her guidance, I have found more balance in my work and home life and ultimately feel in control of my business and future.
~ Paloma White, MS, VTA, ACC, Founder & CEO of Paloma White Travel
I worked with Megan when my firm first went into COVID shut-down in March 2020. She helped me focus my communication to staff and clients so that our firm's message was clear and direct. She was super helpful and great to work with.
