I have endured personal and inter-generational depression. I have also experienced remarkable life-changing benefits from practicing simple tools and techniques that empower me to calm reactive emotions and self-regulate moment by moment, eyes wide open, on-the-go, immeasurably enriching my life, relationships and opportunities. Although stressors don’t suddenly disappear, I’m significantly less influenced by external events and circumstances. I’m happier. I do more of what I love. You can too.
A 30-year business entrepreneur, I’ve been recognized for inspiring healthy and productive teams, from start-up to multi-million dollar organizations. With a keen awareness of the bottom line, my leadership experience has been that the health of any organization is mirrored by the health of their workforce. What gets me out of bed every morning is the passion I have to enable people to thrive in environments of change, challenge and adversity. A HeartMath® Certified Trainer & Mentor since 2016, I have worked with corporations, government agencies, and social service organizations, in support and service of those suffering from mental health issues, domestic violence and incarceration. You can expect kindness, compassion, honesty, curiosity, appreciation, humor, creativity, flexibility, & patience when engaging with me.
Whether you’ve experienced significant trauma, suffer depression, anxiety, or simply run short on patience, building personal resilience and activating your heart can positively change the way you experience life. Your primary responsibility is to care for your self. I can help you experience how. It will be an honor to guide and support you in your journey, whether individually, as a team or within an organization. Please call me at 727-479-2731 or email me at [email protected].
Founder of Build Resilience, Meg is a HeartMath® Master Trainer and Mentor, certified in Resilience Advantage™, Building Personal Resilience™, Activating the Heart of Teams™, and The Resilient Heart™ – Trauma-Sensitive Care
I am passionate about supporting those who care for others. I have tremendous respect for organizations, and compassion for their teams providing at-risk populations with tangible means for self-care and self-sufficiency.
The Red Tent Women’s Initiative (RTWI) is a 501c3 providing incarcerated women with skills to heal and improve their lives through trauma informed programs. Our Vision is that a Red Tent class exists in every jail and prison across our nation.
As a member of the Board of Directors, I am honored and grateful to support the mission and vision of The Red Tent Women’s Initiative. I have taught HeartMath® tools and techniques to participants of the RTWI inside the Pinellas County Jail since 2017. Due to COVID, all outside programs have been restricted from operating inside the jail since March 2020. During this time, the BOD and RTWI team have worked tirelessly to update and validate the curriculum, formally integrating HeartMath® Resilience Advantage™ tools and techniques and have developed a data collection process, all of which can be duplicated in other jails. We hope to be back inside the jail this fall, when I will lead a team of trauma-informed care instructors to welcome our women participants and pilot our newly validated trauma-informed care curriculum. Our goal is to have our curriculum facilitated in additional jails by 2023.

"Meg Hogan has become such an important part of Red Tent Women's Initiative through her facilitation of HeartMath tools and techniques inside the Pinellas County Jail and in our community support groups. The women are amazed at the difference the tools she empowers them with make in their lives. I believe in my heart that we all benefit from the work she has been doing with the women of Red Tent!"
