hospital response Advocate
Megan has spent the last six years working as an advocate in multiple capacities. Four of those years were spent working as a treatment counselor for teens with substance abuse disorders. Most recently, she has been working as a development manager (read: fundraiser extraordinare) and advocate for the arts for a local nonprofit. Megan joined the Rape Recovery Center as a Hospital Response Team Advocate in August 2017 in addition to her day job. She has enjoyed engaging with people who need it on a one-to-one basis again, even if it is only a couple nights a week.
Megan is passionate about social justice, working towards creating equitable opportunities for historically excluded communities, and creating spaces in her hometown where everyone can experience the power of art. When not trying to figure out how to save the world, Megan can likely be found at the dog park, reading new cookbooks, and practicing yoga.
