Megan was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She moved to Baton Rouge to receive her Bacherlor’s degree from LSU in Communicaiton Sciences and Disorders and her Master’s from Southern University. She met the DTS team during her second year of graduate school where she was a camp counselor. Upon graduation, Megan quickly found her groove as part of the #DTSForce and has been making meaningful changes in children’s lives since then. We are excited to be able to help her celebrate her next career milestone in February 2019 when she completes her CFY. Megan enjoys focusing her continuing education on non-traditional approaches to therapy.
