Megan is a writer, poet and student. She attends school online at Arizona State University and is studying to get an undergraduate degree in Education Studies with a minor in Psychology. She ultimately plans to get a Master’s in Bilingual Education or Social Work. It is her hope to work with at-risk youth in the United States, specifically in their English as a Second Language program or as a school social worker.
Megan recently moved home to Pennsylvania, leaving a position in Texas with City Year San Antonio through Americorps. She worked in the SAISD school district, tutoring and mentoring students in Algebra I, Algebra Intervention, and Geometry. She moved back to Pennsylvania to focus on her health.
She accepted a position with Camp Curtin YMCA, where she will be working as an Executive Assistant to the Executive Director, as well as managing the Front Desk relations as the Member Services Supervisor. She will also be working with the Girls All In Motion (Girls A.I.M.) program, and the Teen Achievers program. In addition to all of this, Megan will be a facilitator in Dauphin County schools for the Drug and Alcohol Prevention programs, which run 16 weeks.
Previous experience includes working closely with HopeXchange (Hope for Bipolars), GLAAD, the Advocacy Center of Tompkins County, Family & Children’s Services of Ithaca, Crisis Text Line, and Planned Parenthood of the Southern Fingerlakes.
She lives with her cat son, Felix in Pennsylvania and enjoys earl gray tea, fuzzy blankets, most foods, and reading anything by Patti Smith.
Her first book of poetry and prose, A Filmic Existence, is currently in the works, as well as the outline for a second, Temporary Places.
