Fellow Bio:

Megan swapped her sprawling suburb of Rockville, MD for the quaint town of Princeton, NJ for five years, where she studied Politics and Environment, and trained for the 2012 Olympic Swimming Trials. After Trials, she devoted her time to helping young athletes develop their skills and hone their passion for swimming as a Division III assistant coach. Academic conversations with her swimmers reignited her motivation to become part of something bigger than herself: to re-enter the environmental community and engage in conversations about health, mobility, conservation, and sustainability. Megan interned for both Rock Creek Conservancy (doing invasive species removal) and the National Association of Regional Councils (doing research to incorporate solar technology into regional transportation) and plans on pursuing graduate studies in urban planning._
