Megan moved to Duluth to attend the University of Minnesota-Duluth for Social Work and Psychology. Megan has always had a passion for working with children in her community and has gained experience working with children in a variety of ways. Prior to finishing her education at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, she worked as a supervisor of kid’s programs for a local Parks and Recreation Department in the Twin Cities. Megan currently works as a direct support staff for special-needs children in foster care. This position, combined with her education in social work and psychology, has bolstered her love and passion for working with children and teens with disabilities, as well as furthering her knowledge and expertise on how trauma effects children and adolescents. Before completing her undergraduate degree, Megan spent time as an intern at First Witness Child Advocacy Center (CAC) where her knowledge on working with children and families only expanded. After her completing her internship, Megan was hired to work at First Witness CAC as an Office Assistant where she works to support both the children that come to the center as well as other staff at First Witness CAC.
In her free time Megan loves enjoying all of the nature surrounding Duluth, exploring Lake Superior, and pursuing her passion for watercolor painting and art.
