A sunny California native, Megan was born and raised in Fresno where she was lucky enough to attend arts magnet schools her entire life. She found performing early and began her acting journey by re-enacting scenes from The Little Mermaid in her bedroom (or at the Zoo, in the movie theater, at the grocery store) before enrolling in acting classes at age 5. She began acting professionally in Los Angeles at 6 years old, and earned a BA in Drama from UC Irvine in 2016. 

 

Megan has worked in theater all over the country as well as in England. Since moving back to Los Angeles, she has been cast in feature films, television, commercials, industrials, live events, voiceover, and theatre. She is happily engaged to the love of her life, and when not performing she is either spending time with her dog, Nutmeg, at Disneyland, or cooking up some delicious vegan meal. Or eating french fries (her favorite!)
