Megan is a proud child of Texas, born and raised in Plano ("Greater Dallas" for the uninitiated). She became interested in the global response to human trafficking while completing her Masters Degree in International Relations with Webster University, studying and volunteering throughout Europe and Asia. During this time, Megan began working with agencies that provide rehabilitation services to survivors of trafficking. Megan returned to the States and began linking up with local, state and federal agencies working to prevent trafficking and serve victims, only to realize that the response was lacking the basic tools of organization and coordination that would enhance these efforts. Megan worked to build the first database in North Texas, and possibly the nation, to facilitate coordination between law enforcement, non-profits and individuals working to turn the tide on human trafficking. Megan holds a Doctorate in Management in Homeland Security from Colorado Technical University.
