Megan earned her degree in literature and writing from CSU San Marcos and her master’s in education from University of South Carolina. Megan seems to love doing jobs related to colleges, beginning with her role as an orientation leader at her undergrad institution. She’s been a regional admissions counselor in Southern California for three years, and prior to that she worked as a tutor and instructor on college campuses. When she is not working with students, she is likely hiking some local trails, cooking all kinds of things (though not with cheese – she doesn’t like the stuff), and binge-watching great shows on Netflix.
