Megan was also active in several student activities including the Student Bar Association and Traffic Court.
While in law school, Megan worked as a judicial clerk for the Shawnee Court District Court. During her clerkship, Megan had the opportunity to observe several felony criminal trials and realized she wanted to be a criminal lawyer. As a young adult who had several brushes with the law, Megan knew she did not want to be a prosecutor but wanted to defend those accused of crimes. Megan began interning for a criminal defense firm and was soon providing substantial assistance on high-profile criminal cases. Megan continued her work as a criminal defense lawyer upon starting her own law firm in 2005. Megan's work is highly respected and, due to her expertise, she is frequently sought out by other attorneys to assist in their criminal cases and appeals.
Megan also likes to give back to the community. She is on the Kansas City Leadership Committee for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), Mid-America Chapter. It is a cause near to her heart as both her son and brother have inflammatory bowel disease. She has also volunteered with the ALS Association Keith Worthington Chapter. Megan currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with her partner and 2 young sons.
