Choosing Public Service
Dublin City Manager Megan O’Callaghan is a registered professional engineer and an attorney in the State of Ohio. She could have taken many different career paths, but she chose public service. From the City of Columbus to the State of Ohio and the City of Dublin, O’Callaghan has found her sweet spot in the public sector. Public service means many things to its various constituencies. One day you’re building a first-of-its-kind-in-the-world pedestrian suspension bridge, and on another you’re negotiating land deals, partnering with surrounding jurisdictions on a connected vehicle corridor or serving as a goodwill ambassador on an international stage. Hear Megan discuss her passion for the Dublin community and the importance of building literal, figurative and cultural bridges on the job, all while growing a career that has enriched her life in a way no other profession could have and giving her the opportunity to help improve the city she loves to call home.
