On Jan. 21, McCuaig will lead WILL members through life’s Plan B


Women in Leadership of La Porte County will feature Rebecca McCuaig, presenting “Plan B and How to Navigate It,” on Jan. 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Portofino Grill (St. Andrew Room), 3233 North Ind. 39, La Porte.

Things in life don’t always (or ever) go as planned. What happens when you are motivated, focused, goal oriented, and meet your benchmarks of success and then something out of your control changes everything? How do you reorganize and develop a Plan B without losing that motivation? McCuaig will walk attendees through how you can finish strong in life with resilience and succeed in the days ahead while learning from the events that brought you to this new journey.

McCuaig currently serves as general counsel of the Governor’s Workforce Cabinet under Indiana Governor Holcomb and general counsel for the Office of Career Connections and Talent. She previously served as the city attorney for La Porte and earlier in her career served as a deputy prosecutor in major felony at the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.

She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University, Bloomington, and her Juris Doctorate from Valparaiso University School of Law.

A member of the Indiana Bar Association and Indianapolis Bar Association, she is admitted to practice in the State of Indiana and before the U.S District Court for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana. Before relocating, McCuaig previously volunteered with Girls on the Run and Junior Achievement.

McCuaig, a former La Portean and graduate of La Porte High School, currently lives in Noblesville, IN, with her husband and young daughter. Her father is Pastor Dennis Meyer of Bethany Lutheran Church. Meyer’s Mile Walking Trail at Hailmann Elementary School was created to honor her late mother, Diane Sue Meyer, a longtime teacher at Hailmann.
