Megan has been with DePaul since winter 2012, and has been residence director for University Hall since 2014. In her role, Megan supervises a staff of seven resident advisors (RAs) and works with her hall's Residence Hall Council (RHC) senators on programming for the building, which is a first-year residence hall. Additionally, she refers students to resources and collaborates with various campus partners to ease student transitions both academically and socially to DePaul. When Megan isn't in the office, she enjoys eating her way around Chicago's neighborhoods, going for runs and bike rides along the Chicago lakefront, and taking in the various events happening around the city.

Megan received her BA in English (creative writing--poetry) and sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and her MEd in counseling with a focus in college student development from DePaul University.
