As a health educator and a Licensed Master Social Worker, Megan brings a truly unique perspective on communicating health information to diverse communities in innovative, thoughtful, and sensitive ways. For example, Megan has delivered culturally-sensitive therapy to refugees newly settling in the U.S. and evidence-based behavioral interventions to children on the autism spectrum. She has also worked in behavioral and mental health research at Washington University in St. Louis, and is well-versed (and chorused) in research and evaluation methodologies.
Not satisfied to keep her experience to herself, Megan has developed comprehensive training for our staff to ensure that each of us is confident and competent in creating excellent communication materials and media.
Megan holds a Master of Health Education degree from the University of
Texas at Austin and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of California, Berkley.
