Megan spent the past twelve years of her life working in public service. For six of those years, she learned the importance of compassion and hard work as she responded to multiple public health emergencies such as H1N1 and the Moore 2013 Tornado, while working in a local county health department. She went on to work in early childhood policy and non-profit grants management before landing in workforce development. Throughout her public service career, she has learned that the best way to grow our economy is by investing in the people who do the work, by providing access to work with better wages, mental health care, housing, and more public transit.
Megan was born to Southern Baptist missionaries in Asuncion, Paraguay, but has lived in Oklahoma the last 21 years, graduating from Shawnee High School before getting her degree in art from Oklahoma Baptist University. Megan recently completed her master of public administration and has lived in Oklahoma City with her husband, Russell, and daughter for the last eleven years. Megan is running for city council so that all people, no matter their ability, race, status, or age, will have the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from the Oklahoma City government. She will fight for more funding to reduce homelessness, increase access to public transit and mental health care.
