Although she currently resides in Columbus, Ohio, Megan was born and raised in Metro Detroit and still considers herself a proud Michigander. When she’s not busy working, Megan is likely out trying new restaurants with her partner, starting NYT Sunday crossword puzzles, or binging comfort shows while snuggling with her cat, Romy.
