Megan was born in Morristown and is a 2009 graduate of Morristown High School. She relocated to the Jersey Shore region to attend Monmouth University in West Long Branch, NJ where she became actively involved with Clean Ocean Action and participated in beach and river cleanups locally and across the state. In 2013 Megan graduated with a B.S. in International Business and returned to Morris County.
A current Morristown resident, Megan is passionate about waste reduction, composting, recycling, wildlife conservation, and educating individuals on how they can adopt environmentally-friendly practices in their homes and workplaces. She has found ways to encourage her employers to be more sustainable, including developing a recycling program for a retail/e-commerce warehouse, implementing a switch to eco-friendly pest control and landscaping businesses, and eventually becoming a sales consultant for Covanta- a Waste-to-Energy company based in Morristown. At Covanta, Megan led the DEA Drug Take-Back program, focused on partnering with police departments, municipalities, and pharmacies across the US to offer a free and safe disposal option for unwanted pharmaceuticals. Megan is currently employed as a Sales Representative for Stericycle and will continue to focus on advocating and implementing sustainable waste solutions.
