Welcome to KCAA's new Junior Co-Chair

KCAA is happy to introduce our newly-elected Junior Co-Chair Megan Rohleder. 

Megan grew up around the world as the daughter of an Air Force service member. When asked where home is, though, she typically answers with Nebraska. She graduated from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln with an undergraduate degree in English Literature. From there she spent the next decade in retail and banking compliance. After a tumultuous ride through the ups and downs of the mortgage industry, Megan decided it was time to go back to graduate school to follow her bliss into the world of libraries and archives.

Megan settled in Topeka in August of 2016 after accepting the Electronic Records Archivist position in the State Archives at the Kansas Historical Society. After completing her Masters of Library Science degree from Emporia State University, she was promoted to the head of the Public Records section of the archives early in 2017. She spent the first few years of her career learning the ropes as a new archivist and fostering professional relationships with the many government agencies for which she is a records management consultant. Staff turnover and retirements presented the Historical Society with an opportunity to re-structure in the summer of 2018. Megan moved in to the role of Senior Archivist of Public Services in August of 2018. In this position she oversees the Public Records and Reference sections.

Megan lives in the heart of Topeka with her two cats and tiny dog.
