Over the course of the last decade, she has held positions across a wide range of settings and roles in early childhood education.

In that role, she works to cultivate the leadership and anti-bias competencies of early childhood professionals around the country. She holds a master’s degree in early childhood education from Dominican University and is currently pursuing her doctorate in social policy at Brandeis University. Her dissertation research examines the impact of colorblind policy making on the racial diversity and equity of the early care and education teaching workforce. She is honored to have been awarded the Doris Duke Fellowship for the Promotion of Child Well-Being.
Megan lives in Harlem with her partner, Ruben Brosbe. They love writing, eating, hiking, and taking action for social justice together.
