They keep me busy outside of work running back and forth from dance classes and karate. Music is my other passion and when I do manage to find free time, you can find me attending a concert or catching a live local show. I also enjoy hiking and camping. I had the opportunity to go out west a few years back and found that the Tetons were one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I hope to return there for a vacation very soon.”

Megan’s favorite mottos to live by:

“The brave may not live forever, but the cautious never live at all.”
“Well behaved women rarely make history.”
