I'm Megan. I'm a writer, designer, photographer, and organizer residing in Brooklyn. I currently work as a philanthropic communications specialist at Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund, where I design high-level donor-facing materials. In my free time, I write The Pill, a weekly newsletter on sexual and reproductive health and rights, and am creative directing Tiffany Cabán’s campaign for Queens District Attorney.
In 2018, I volunteered my skills as a designer for NYC-DSA and progressive candidates in New York and Missouri. In the run-up to midterms, I spent two weeks deployed with the Florida Democrats in St. Augustine, where I coordinated and trained volunteers, ran a staging location, and discovered a passion for field organizing.
My communications ethos is one of education and accessibility. I don’t believe in dumbing things down for constituents and supporters: My approach uses horizontal language and aims to make policy and politics accessible, rather than obscuring the heart of the matter with parroted talking points bereft of meaning or context.
Prior to my role at Planned Parenthood, I worked as a communications organizer with Know Your IX, where I led and executed social media strategy during the upheaval of Obama-era Title IX guidelines. During this time, I honed our brand voice and visual language, writing copy and designing graphics, FAQs, and training guides for a variety of audiences across all digital channels.
From 2015 to 2016, I served as editor-in-chief of Student Life Newspaper. Before that, I worked for the paper as a designer, photographer, copy editor, reporter, and graphics editor.
I freelanced as a photographer throughout college for clients including LaunchCode, Fauxgerty, TechArtista, PluggedIN STL, and the BALSA Foundation.
