Education: BA in International Studies, American University

Known around the office as: MB or just Megan

Recognizable as: Being the first face you see upon entering the office


Megan joined the CFSY team in September of 2016, after graduating from American University in May. As one of the Campaign’s Program Assistants, Megan works to engage with volunteers and donors, plan and execute events, and help further the Campaign’s advocacy efforts.

Although she majored in International Studies in college, her concentrations in Identity, Race, Gender, and Culture as well as in Human Rights allowed her to explore some of the very serious human rights violations happening right here in the United States. Megan became passionate about criminal justice reform and fighting for those who are disenfranchised by the current system.

Before coming to the Campaign, Megan worked as a development intern at the DC Center for the LGBT Community and more recently at the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.

In her free time, Megan enjoys dancing, rollerblading, or spending time with friends. She also has a passion for cheese.
