Meghan grew up in Atlanta, GA and graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008 with a B.A. in religion, inclusive of psychology coursework. She then completed an M.A. in religious studies at the same university, where she focused on ritual studies, and wrote her thesis on how ritual can be used intentionally as a tool to promote healing. During this time she also completed a yoga teacher training, and after she graduated, she worked for a health food company that focused on functional healing. She re-located to Denver, CO in 2012, where she worked for two years in the corporate world while completing additional psychology coursework, and decided to pursue a career in the field. She joined the Gotlib lab in the fall of 2014 as a research assistant, and since then has coordinated several studies with adults, children and adolescents. Currently she coordinates two projects with depressed adolescents, and one that is a part of the Early Life Stress study. In her free time, Meghan loves exploring the beautiful outdoors with her dog, seeing live music, the arts, reading and yoga.
