The Light Shift™ with Meghan Finley: Legal Collector and College Basketball Fanatic

Meghan Finley is a legal collector, college basketball fanatic and member of the Light Shift.


​Whether it’s getting up in the middle of the night for work, or following her favorite college basketball team across the Pacific Northwest, Meghan Finley always seems to be on the road. We took some time to catch up with Meghan and listen to what drives her during her Light Shift—here’s how she tells her story:

“As a legal collector, there isn’t a typical workweek for me. Monday I could be in court, Tuesday in the field, and Wednesday back in the office trying to track down items or people for nonpayment. The only consistencies I do have at work are 10-hour days, Monday through Thursday; although it seems longer with a two hour commute each way.

I actually enjoy my longer work days because the first and last few hours are pretty quiet around the office. However, it comes with extra responsibility since I have to focus more on the roads because fog and animals are common on my dawn to dusk travels.

I use my personal car to commute to work and a work vehicle while on the job. Driving multiple cars, I have noticed major headlight differences. Properly working headlights and fog lights make a big difference as I can now see ahead of me much better and no longer have to guess about the road ahead of me. Since some of my commute is very foggy, my fog lights ensure my safety. I purchased my car new and since then have switched to SYLVANIA headlights based on a recommendation. I never thought new headlights could make such a night and day difference.

I also rack up hundreds of miles in the months leading up to March Madness traveling to as many University of Gonzaga Bulldog games as I can to watch them on their hopeful run in the NCAA tournament. I’ve traveled as far as Portland, Oregon to see the Bulldogs play in the 2009 NCAA tournament and regularly enjoy going to the Battle in Seattle. I’m glad I have lights that I can depend on to get me everywhere I need to go safely.”
