Megan Maikowski is a local young professional and the Marketing Manager for Mosaic Telecom. Mosaic Telecom is the area’s local Internet, TV, Telephone and IT services provider. As the Marketing Manager, her job is to market their services while doing community outreach to engage with the public in the communities they serve. We wanted to know why she chose a career in marketing and what inspired her to do so in the Momentum West region.
What inspired you to go into marketing?
Growing up I did not know what major I wanted to pursue, but I did know a few things that I wanted to be able to do with whichever major I chose: 1. Be able to help others and 2. be creative and active in the process of doing #1.
When I finally decided on a major, I chose Public Relations with a minor in Marketing. I feel that Marketing is the heart of a business. Without it, it is hard to grow or take the next direction.

I have worked in the rural telecom industry in various ways in the past 8 years and when the opportunity for this job came about, I loved the idea of moving back to where I grew up while continuing to work in the rural telecom industry.
