Megan was born and raised outside of Burlington, Vermont. She became interested in healthcare during high school and volunteered as an Emergency Medical Technician for more than five years. While studying nursing at the University of Vermont she became active in public health affairs and studied abroad in Uganda, where she first attended births with midwives.
After returning from Africa she reached out to a local midwifery practice and began participating in prenatal care and midwife-led hospital births. Megan realized that midwifery was a career that would enable her to use her passion for education to empower women. She attended the University of Pennsylvania where she earned a dual degree in Nurse-Midwifery and Women’s Health. After graduating she taught undergraduate nursing at the University of Pennsylvania, while working as a triage nurse in a high-risk obstetric clinic in Philadelphia.
Megan joined the Midwives of New Jersey in June of 2016. She is thrilled to join a practice of like-minded midwives that support physiologic birth and provide individualized healthcare to women and their families. She feels it is a great honor to serve women and be a part of their stories.
In her free time she enjoys reading, cooking, bicycling, and traveling to visit family and friends.
