Megan received her B.S. in Geology from University of Dayton in 2015. She participated in the River Stewards program where she found her passion for water resources. This led to an undergraduate thesis on nutrient transport trends of surface runoff. After graduating, she worked in Alaska with volunteers to make a difference in the riparian habitat through river cleanups, fencing projects, and education. From 2016-2017, Megan served over 3,600 hours to local communities through AmeriCorps national service program. In 2016, I served with the Student Conservation Association in New Hampshire where she focused on environmental education in the schools and trail work in New Hampshire State Parks. In 2017, Megan served the Beaverhead Watershed Committee in an agricultural community in southwest Montana where she wrote a watershed restoration plan for the Beaverhead Watershed. Before joining the Pittsburgh Water Collaboratory, she empowered youth through STEM and education with multiple local organizations. She is passionate about community building and environmental conservation.
