Design isn't just about aesthetics, it's about impact. I use design strategy to help chip away at some of the world’s most complex problems. I'm committed to creating a world that is more just and equitable, and I believe the process of design will help us get there.

My clients are innovators in emerging markets that address the needs and desires of underserved communities around the world.

"Meghan was one of the most remarkable people we had working with us and made huge strides for BRCK in getting us to think through our user experience and testing methodologies while she was part of the team." — Erik Hersman, CEO, BRCK

I'm currently a UX/UI Designer at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, DC. I'm the first design hire on a new agile team that is rethinking how emerging technology can help reshape monetary policy. In the evenings, I serve on AIGA DC's Board of Directors. I also teach Interaction and Interface Design, a core required course, to students enrolled in the Interaction and Information Architecture Master's Degree and Certificate Program at the University of Baltimore.

Previously, I worked with Bridge International Academies, the largest chain of primary schools serving parents across Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and India, to help launch a 50 school public-private partnership with the Government of Liberia. In my role, I used service design and qualitative, ethnographic research to help develop go-to-market and parent engagement strategies for the pilot launch.

"Meghan, thank you so much for your perceptive creativity, inclusive vision, and openness of heart and mind. Your gift for drawing out the insights of others is priceless!" — Barbara Petzen, Center for Strategic and International Studies

My first job in government was as a design strategist for the LAB at OPM (the U.S. Office of Personnel Management) where I helped leverage and apply a human-centered design approach to developing and implementing better policy, programs and services within agencies across federal government. 

"Meghan is extremely upbeat, personable, and able to prioritize and excel in a quick-paced environment, despite competing demands for her attention." — Barbara Palley, Cool Culture

I am a graduate of the Design for Social Innovation MFA program at the School of Visual Arts.  As a student, my work was featured in the New York Times and Fast Company. I am continuing my design education at the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

"Meghan is wonderful to work with...creative, personable and delivers what she says she will...on time...a true pleasure." — Carey Ford, Freelance Client

Prior to studying design, I worked at the intersection of communications and international development in Afghanistan, producing television and radio campaigns.  While overseas, I organized a group of volunteers to launch of the first-ever
TEDx event in Afghanistan, which is now run by a group of local Afghan students. I was a Fulbright Scholar in Hong Kong, an Abshire-Inamori Leadership Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and an Entrepreneurship Fellow with the Open Hands Initiative in Jordan.

"Meghan is a detailed-oriented professional with a lot of drive and creative passion. She is always ready for new challenges and adventures. She is a very strong writer and has a great eye for concept development and design of new products and projects." — Lauren Katzenberg, CETENAGROUP
