she/her/hers, Program Coordinator
Megan started working at Western in 2015 as an Office Assistant in the Elementary Education Department. Presently, she is a Program Coordinator in the same department, with specific focus on the Early Childhood Education Program.
Megan strives to diversify the teaching workforce by recruiting and retaining pre-service teachers that are BIPOC, LGBTQ+, first generation, as well as other underrepresented groups within the teaching profession. Megan’s office is frequently occupied with students, which speaks to the trust she has built with them, and the safe, supportive space she provides. Students highlight the knowledge that Megan provides to them about the program, university and community resources that have been critical for their success in the program. One student shares, “She is always willing to make time for anything I need, whether that is degree related or mental support.”
Outside of her department work, Megan is also a member of Woodring’s Equity and Diversity Committee, and works closely with Woodring’s Office of Access, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to review practices and advocate for strategies that promote equity and honor diversities.
Megan graduated cum laude from Western in 2014, receiving a B.S. in Applied Mathematics with a minor in Economics.
