Having grown up in Topanga, Megan understands and appreciates the unique qualities the canyon provides to a school such as Manzanita. She earned a B.A. from UC Santa Cruz in American Studies, focusing on social justice and education and worked with Access Services, providing health and educational services to students with disabilities. She has worked in early childcare and served as a researcher and editorial assistant at the Center for Civic Education, a nonprofit organization with a seventy-year history of developing curricula and providing teacher training in civic education. After spending the last eleven years working in the music industry in artist management Megan is excited to return to her passion of working with youth by helping Manzanita's high school students determine their next step after graduation. She feels passionate about helping young people find their place in the world and is grateful to have the opportunity to work with Manzanita's inspiring community.
