Senior Content Strategist, Simplification, based in New York
At one point in her life, Megan thought about becoming a lawyer. We’re glad that didn’t work out. Instead, Megan opted to pursue the craft of writing. She realized that her unique ability to distill information and turn a phrase would be better served helping people traverse their daily communication jungles than managing the intricacies of a legal case.
Today Megan is an expert at making complex information more intelligible. She has helped many of our clients—including Bank of America, Aetna, Nationwide Insurance as well as the IRS and the SEC—provide a clear and intuitive roadmap for information, enabling people to find content quickly, easily and intuitively.
Before joining us, Megan worked at the National Futures Association, where she managed arbitration cases involving futures and options trading-related disputes. She also worked at the law firm Sidley Austin LLP and Penguin Group USA, where she drafted and revised author contracts.
Megan graduated with a BA in English from Grinnell College. She also earned an MA in professional writing from Carnegie Mellon University where she focused on plain language writing and communication design. Megan currently lives in Brooklyn, but will always be a Midwesterner at heart.
