“Yesterday’s experiences drive today’s decisions. I collaborate with my clients and my team to provide big ideas and illuminating details that bring the past to life and inform the present and the future.”
Work at HAI
At HAI, Megan manages our Content and Digital Storytelling services. Her past work as a historian, researcher, writer, content developer, and project manager informs her approach to her current work. Megan works with clients to understand their current and future needs. History takes many forms. With that in mind, she helps clients articulate an actionable need—whether they want to tell the history of their organization, create compelling museum exhibits, or use historical content to help promote traditional or new forms of business.
Megan thrives on building valuable relationships with her colleagues and her clients—she’s the office mom. Her interests range from Japanese kabuki theater to nineteenth-century medical history (and everything in between). At HAI, her past work includes exhibit, website, and interactive development; in-depth historical research; oral history projects; multimedia research and acquisition; custom map design; research and development of educational supplements; and management and research for environmental litigation.
Her clients include:
- American Battlefield Trust
- American Battle Monuments Commission
- Discovery Education
- Hot Springs National Park
- National Institutes of Health
- National World War II Museum
- Pearson Education
- Tennessee State Museum
- Washington Monument
- White House Visitor Center
Path to HAI
Prior to joining HAI, Megan interned at the Maryland State Archives with the Special Collections department. She graduated summa cum laude from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2011 with a BA in history and English. During her time at St. Mary’s, she was in the Paul H. Nitze Scholars Program and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Alpha Theta. Her senior thesis, “That Which Remains: The Interplay of Memory, Fact, and Fiction in Holocaust Remembrance,” considered the inseparability of the literary and the historical in Holocaust memoirs, literature, and films.
In 2019, Megan became a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).
