Bachelor of Science, Civil Engineering • Loyola Marymount University
Born and raised in Hawai’i, Megan has always been intrigued by the relationship and dependency of people and environmental resources. She was able to materialize her interests in this connectivity through a career driven by the concept of sustainability. Megan graduated from Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles) in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Following graduation, she completed a year of Americorps civic service, working as a Volunteers Manager for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, where she managed volunteers and future homeowners to create affordable housing opportunities.
Megan has since worked as a civil engineer focused on sustainable solutions, specifically in water resource management. She has worked on various projects across the San Francisco Bay Area reimagining how future projects can be successful and efficient with less impact on the environment. From contributing to long range development plans for public universities to the implementation of on-site sustainable solutions at new business campuses, her broad spectrum of projects has helped her grow in project management, client communication, and decision making. Her interest in the University of Toronto’s MScSM program was sparked by the hope to help integrate sustainability into the foundation of more businesses.
Outside of school, Megan can be found travelling, hiking, practicing yoga, or around town determined to find the best tacos.
