3 Choices Creative Communications was founded by Margaret Meps Schulte. With 35 years of experience in nonprofit and corporate communications, her life’s mission is to communicate as clearly and effectively as possible.
Meps launched her design career as a freelance illustrator and calligrapher in high school, before receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Ohio State University. She launched her communications career at Battelle Memorial Institute, a global nonprofit science and technology organization best known as the place where the Xerox machine was developed. Long before PowerPoint was even heard of, she produced slide presentations that illustrated technical concepts like artificial hearts and no-lick stamp adhesives.
She relocated to the Pacific Northwest in 1995, where she worked for Arthur Andersen Business Consulting as a Knowledge Manager, Quovera as an Information Architect, and Expeditors International as a Business Analyst.
In 1998, Meps was a founding board member of Bahia Street, an international nonprofit that provided educational opportunities to girls and young women in Bahia, Brazil. She was later a founding board member of Sou Digna/I Am Worthy, an organization dedicated to capacity-building and vocational education in the same region. She volunteered with a number of nonprofit organizations, developing their first websites, databases, and email strategies in the early days of the internet.
Meps is a bluewater sailor, an extensive traveler, and the author and illustrator of two books, including the award-winning Strangers Have the Best Candy. She is also a boatbuilder and expert in marine composite construction. She divides her time between Seattle, Washington and Dunedin, Florida.
