Colette Allen was founded by Meighan Newhouse in 2012 out of a passion for job satisfaction. She believes if you are going to spend the majority of your time working, you should love what you do. Or at least like it a lot. When employees are engaged, they enjoy their work more. Learning helps them feel engaged.

Meg has her master's degree in instructional design from the University of Illinois, and has been a learning professional for over a decade.


She serves on the Board of Directors as the Vice President of Membership for the Association for Talent Development, Chicagoland Chapter (ATDChi), the premier organization for workplace learning and performance professionals.


She truly loves her work.
