Location: Des Moines, IA
After starting her career in academia, Megan found her way into the technical world first as an editor, then as a project manager for a software company in Iowa City. After moving to Des Moines, she entered the government space and the world of Drupal, running a team of Drupal developers. Those experiences, as well as her academic career, lent itself naturally to her role as a technical project manager at Four Kitchens. She loves working with clients whose organizations offer resources that improve people’s quality of life, such as nonprofits, government agencies, and higher ed. Driven by the desire to do good and make the internet a better place, Megan believes that fostering relationships of trust, honesty, and integrity with clients and end users ultimately creates a better product.
Megan loves to travel (when global pandemics aren’t a thing) and often dreams of retiring to Vietnam. A dedicated cook, her travels inevitably become food tours — with the odd roller coaster thrown in to boot. She’s also well-versed in science fiction (particularly the works of Octavia E. Butler) and is a dab hand at trivia.
