Each month, we highlight an employee from different departments of the company across the world, who will share with our readers a little bit about themselves and what it means to be a part of the Aciron team.
Today, Megan Rothe, the Office Coordinator at our office in Cambridge, MA, talks about a typical day at Aciron, her favorite part of the job, and her love of dancing and foreign language!
Where did you grow up?
My father was in the Army, so we moved around a lot when I was a kid. I lived in Arizona, Germany, and Georgia before we finally settled down in Wisconsin.
How did you find this job?
I was referred by Aciron’s previous Office Coordinator, Mary French. We knew each other from studying abroad in college. I saw her post on social media about the job opening, so I reached out to her to learn more.
What did you do before?
I studied French at Amherst College. After graduation, I spent a year studying in Paris on a French department fellowship.
How would you quickly explain what you do?
We call our CEO the Chief of Everything, and I’m the Chief of Everything Else. I’m in charge of HR, recruiting, invoices, knowledge management, event planning, and more. I help out the consulting and marketing teams with projects as needed.
What does a typical day look like for you?
No two days look alike for me. One day I might be preparing invoices and researching UX design. Another day I might be updating our website and reviewing resumes.
What’s your favorite part about Aciron?
The tight-knit community — it’s such a pleasure to have coworkers who are also your friends. We all collaborate and support each other in our work, and we have a lot of fun together in the office and on team outings.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
I love that I get to do a little bit of everything in my role. I’m always learning something new and working on different projects.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love to dance! Recently, I’ve been taking a lot of Lindy Hop lessons, but I also love salsa and ballroom dancing. If I’m not out dancing, I’m probably at home reading or baking.
Where is your favorite place that you have ever visited?
Paris was an amazing place to live. I loved biking along the Seine, visiting museums and parks, and eating lots of delicious pastries from bakeries.

I speak both French and Spanish, and in my free time, I’m currently learning Italian and German.
