Meet our Peace Corps Transition Coach

Meg Mayzelle


Peace Corps Service

Our dedicated Peace Corps Transition Coach is amazing! Meg is a first-generation college graduate from West Virginia.  She served as a beekeeping/agriculture volunteer in Paraguay 2007-2009. She then extended her service through 2010 to complete an urban project. After her Close of Service, Meg ventured to California to earn two M.S. in International Development.

After Peace Corps

Following graduate school, Meg began working as a community development project manager and director. She quickly discovered her favorite part of every project was guiding motivated individuals to new heights in their lives and careers. In fact, Meg spent so much time coaching people that she finally quit her job to do it full time.

As a Coach

Now, Meg is a certified Academic & Life Coach in compliance with International Coaching Federation standards. It’s apparent that Meg adores coaching. She’s great at putting herself in your shoes, she’s amazing at editing resumes, and her intuition is spot-on. 

Of course, Meg also has tons of experience in several fields very popular with Peace Corps folks. She’s worked in government, NGOs, private industry, public schools, universities, and entrepreneurship, both domestically and abroad. So if you’re considering it, Meg has probably done it!

Revisiting Volunteer Life

Meg’s Peace Corps site is her second home, and she returns often to visit her two goddaughters. Ana Paula won Meg’s heart back in 2007, and Dara Sofia arrived in 2018. Of course, no visit would be complete without Meg’s 9 host sibling, amazing host parents, and the beautiful village of Tebicuary-mi.

“Meg was very professional and engaging. She was very easy to talk to about the problems I encountered at the end of my service, and what next steps I wanted to take. I never felt intimidated or uncomfortable, even when she asked really thought-provoking questions.” -Megan, Tanzania
