Biography

Megan is an Experience Designer from the San Francisco Bay Area. She believes in the power of design and its ability to enact positive change in every aspect of life.

Megan's professional career began in elementary education, where she helped French-speaking students navigate the American school system. She then relocated to France and designed engaging lesson plans to teach English to students.

Her talent for guiding others through novel experiences brought Megan to the tech sector. She joined Airbnb and Uber when they were early age start-ups, designing customer experiences and digital products. While rewarding, a lagging social sector prompted her to consider how to apply design thinking to improve social services.

Megan's passion for creating access to knowledge, building pathways to opportunity, and facilitating connection through everyday interactions lead her to the Integrative Design program at the University of Michigan.

Megan is exploring the intersection of design and human connection in her work. One key research interest while enrolled in the Integrative Design program is how the built environment might foster vulnerability and belonging.
