Megan loves to participate in Pilates and is a Pilates instructor as her "for funsies" job on the side. She is also an avid reader, so when she isn't working or spending time with her family, you will usually catch her with her nose in a book or listening to an audio book. She loves to travel and she has a goal to go to every Disney theme park on the planet. Megan is married and has two children (one of whom has special needs) who have unfortunately inherited her personality thanks to her mother’s curse (you know, the one where your mom says “I hope your kids grow up to act just like you). " Megan also loves dogs more than most people and has two fur babies: Lady and Tramp.
