Megan Armstrong – 20 years!

On July 1, 2018 MEGAN ARMSTRONG Celebrated her 20 year Anniversary with Millcreek Gardens!

Megan joined the Millcreek team in the Summer of 1998 upon graduating summa cum laude from Ohio University with a Bachelor degree in Plant Biology. Her love of plants began at an early age as she grew up in horticulture working on her family’s blueberry farm and greenhouse operation in Mansfield, Ohio. As a matter of fact, her Dad became a customer of Millcreek over 30 years ago when he would visit the nursery in search of hostas to fuel his newfound passion of hosta hybridization.

In 1998, she joined our team as the IMPACT Department Production Supervisor. She led the charge of getting the IMPACT containers planted each day according to the production schedule. At that time the potting took place around a flat-top farm wagon and by manually dumping 3 cubic foot bags of soil. After a couple of years of Production, Megan began assisting with growing the IMPACT Perennials out in the growing areas and became a manager in the IMPACT Department where her duties expanded to include crop planning, order picking, and overseeing the care of plants in the IMPACT area.

Megan regularly contributed to office functions including creating and sending the Availability and various other computer network or technology items. In the Fall of 2009, Megan transitioned into the office as the Business Office Manager and in 2012 she was given the additional responsibility of Assistant General Manager. She has been instrumental in the adoption of our current Growing Software system as well as most all of the technology the company has invested in over the last 10 years. Her leadership has contributed to the success of Millcreek in many ways. She is articulate, professional, hardworking, and dedicated to Millcreek and her family.
