Jen Miller-McEachern was hired in 2013 as the first executive director for the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association (NCGA). She runs the day-to-day operations of the organization with a focus in the areas of governance, championships, corporate sponsorships and fundraising.
Miller-McEachern was a Springfield College women’s gymnastics team member from 1990-1993 and entered the NCGA as the assistant women’s gymnastics coach at MIT in 2004. A year later, she was hired as the head coach. Since that time, she has served as the ECAC Division III Women’s Gymnastics Committee Chair as well as the NCGA Vice Chair, championship meet director and sponsorship consultant. She was awarded the NACGC/W Division III East coach of the Year in 2007 and remained actively involved within the NCGA after MIT eliminated their women’s gymnastics program in 2009.
Miller-McEachern currently serves as the chair of the NCAA Olympic Sports Liaison Committee, which works with the USOC and National Governing Body Presidents to enhance the experience of those college athletes that also train as Olympic level competitors. This position allows her to strengthen the relationship between USA Gymnastics and NCAA competitive gymnasts, in all three divisions, through the Outreach Program created by the committee.
In addition to her role as the executive director for the NCGA, Miller-McEachern serves as the assistant director of the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) in Boston, Massachusetts. Her responsibilities for the NEWMAC include, governance, compliance, championships, officiating and programming.
