Megan is in her third year and is proud to be a member of Lewis and Clark Law School’s Animal Legal Defense Fund. She is from Marco Island, Florida.
Megan attended the University of Virginia where she majored in Philosophy and minored in Religious Studies. It was there that she connected her passion for animal protection with a career in law. She chose Lewis & Clark because of its unmatched Animal Law program. Before attending law school, Megan worked at Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots. She assisted students and teachers implementing service-based projects to better their communities.
Megan spent her first summer with The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) as the Pharmaceutical Science Policy Intern. She worked on initiatives to reduce and replace animal testing in drug development. She had the privilege of speaking with leaders of regulatory agencies and cutting-edge biomedical companies.
Megan spent this past summer at the Virginia Office of the Attorney General within the Animal Law Unit. She assisted in cases involving animal cruelty, wildlife trafficking, and animal fighting. Additionally, she participated in an externship in Ecuador through Defend Them All where she worked as part of a team to address street dog overpopulation and destructive mining practices.
Previously, Megan served as the 1L Representative and the Pro Bono Chair. She is looking forward to the year ahead and is proud to serve alongside a team of invaluable individuals. Megan has two tabby cats, Grayson and Graham, who are her pride and joy.
