Megan draws on 10 years of experience in nonprofit management to oversee the financial, fundraising and operational aspects of San Diego Coastkeeper. She connects the organization with the community it serves, the partners we work alongside and the supporters who make our vision possible. Megan is known for a collaborative leadership style and ability to build and maintain relationships.
She believes the passion and expertise at Coastkeeper brings a unique and invaluable voice to water issues in San Diego County and gives us the best chance to achieve fishable, swimmable, drinkable waters.
Megan joined San Diego Coastkeeper in April 2009. Prior to her appointment as executive director, she was development director. In that role she raised an annual budget of $1M and created new opportunities for the community to participate in Coastkeeper’s mission through philanthropy, corporate partnership, events and volunteer experiences. She brings grant writing experience from Teach For America where her writing was adopted as a new organization-wide template for foundation and corporate grants. She also spent five years at the National Geographic Society where she gained experience in finance and administration and coordinated an annual 600-person black tie event. Megan holds a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) with a focus on nonprofit management from the Yale School of Management and an international business degree from Georgetown University. She has lived and worked in San Diego, Washington, DC and Mexicali, BC. She currently serves on the board of directors of United Way of San Diego County, the advisory council of the Center for Civic Engagement at The San Diego Foundation, and the board of Hope Horse Ranch of Poway.
A native San Diegan, Megan grew up on Lake Hodges and Lake Poway, at Fletcher Cove and Moonlight Beach and exploring the creeks and culverts behind her house. Today she continues to live and play at the water’s edge. Now she takes a surfboard with her to the beach and includes more lakes and breaks when she wanders. Megan’s passionate belief in the public’s right to and responsibility for clean water—whether salt, brackish, fresh or for drinking—drives her leadership of San Diego Coastkeeper.
