She also developed an interest in Alternative Dispute Resolution and in 2003 obtained her mediation certification through focused training on family law.
Megan attended the University of Maryland and graduated from the honors program with a BA in Sociology in 2004. Her coursework at Maryland included extensive legal training and her honor's thesis addressed constitutional and civil rights. She went on to attend the University of Denver College of Law evening program, as she worked full time during the day as a paralegal and research assistant for the notable Denver criminal defense firm Recht & Kornfeld.

She also spent a summer semester studying International Law in Rhodes, Greece through an affiliate program with Tulane Law School.
Since 2010, Megan has devoted her practice to family law and has obtained extensive trial experience. She worked at the Van Der Jagt Law Firm on a variety of family and criminal law matters, appearing in courts throughout the Front Range – including the successful defense of a felony matter and dramatic victories with respect to parenting time, child support, spousal support and property distribution in divorce matters. She immediately assumed a leadership role at the firm and excelled at complex trial advocacy matters. Megan is a member of the Colorado Bar Association (Criminal and Family Law sections), the Heart of the Rockies Bar Association, and the 7th Judicial District Bar Association.

After entering private practice, she handled family law matters pro bono for Metro Volunteer Lawyers and volunteered as an attorney poll watcher for the Voter Protection Team in Denver. In Summer 2013, Megan and Ben Kahn devoted more than 180 hours of legal services pro bono to a local Salida mom's case, successfuly helping her in a heavily litigated battle over the relocation of her son.
In her spare time, Megan enjoys spending time with family, surfing, snowboarding, cooking, traveling, and practicing yoga. Megan is also the owner and operator of another small business dedicated to yoga and health called “Yoga Olas”.
