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 write and design high-level donor-facing materials. I also write The Pill, a weekly newsletter on sexual and reproductive health and rights.
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. In the spring, through an open letter campaign, I helped raise over $13,000 for RAICES Texas alongside fellow alumni of my alma mater, from which Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen graduated in 1978. I co-wrote the open letter with Richard Stull ’12, and worked to place stories in Teen Vogue, the Washington Post, the Tampa Bay Times, and Rewire, among other outlets.
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. During my term, we won 18 Missouri College Media Awards, including 1st Place in News Writing and 2nd Place in Sweepstakes. 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.
