Margaret Meps Schulte is the founder of 3 Choices Creative Communications. With 35 years of experience in nonprofit and corporate communications, her life’s mission is to deliver the right information to the right people in the right format.
Meps launched her career at Battelle Memorial Institute, the global nonprofit science and technology organization best known as the place where the Xerox machine was developed. Long before PowerPoint existed, she used dedicated computer systems to illustrate things 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.
