Megan enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, trying new spices, and - of course - taste-testing everything! She loves to explore by walking and can often be found on the paths along the Potomac River. Megan believes that music and art help to create community culture and soothe the soul. She tries to include these moments throughout her personal and work day.
