Megan moved to Duluth to attend the University of Minnesota-Duluth where she earned a Bachelor of Social Work and a minor in 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 spent time as a supervisor of kid’s programs for a local Parks and Recreation Department in the Twin Cities. Megan also spent over four years as a direct support staff for special-needs children in foster care. This position, combined with her education, bolstered her love and passion for working with children and teens with disabilities, as well as furthered 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 completing her degree, Megan was employed part-time at First Witness as an office assistant. Megan currently works full time as a Forensic Interviewer and Trainer at First Witness CAC where she provides neutral forensic interviews to children, adolescents, and vulnerable adults who allege abuse and maltreatment.
In her free time Megan enjoys painting, exploring Lake Superior with her friends and family, and taking her cats on walks outside.
