Bio

Meghan is a passionate young woman in computer science and avid community leader. She holds various industry certifications including Microsoft Office Specialist and Oracle SQL Associate. Meghan has volunteered hundreds of hours to help senior citizens learn how to use technology to reenter the workforce, connect with family, and integrate it into everyday life. She has interned in her hometown Summer STEM Camp to inspire middle schoolers to pursue STEM in and outside of school using rocketry and mini-car racing as focal points. In finding the need for a more supportive environment for girls to explore STEM, she created and directed her own Girls STEM Summer Camp. Making her own curriculum and materials, she taught a small cohort of middle schoolers various topics using hands on activities like making bath bombs, succulent terrariums, and balloon cars. Meghan is also a proud member of the 2019 Class of NJ Governor's STEM Scholars. She would like study computer science in college to integrate her knowledge into the healthcare or defense field. Meghan is very interested in integrating technology into the solutions regarding the opioid epidemic, especially in New Jersey. She believes that creating a national narcotic tracking system and database would be the first step to preventing opioid addiction and misuse. Meghan is dedicated to harness the power technology has to radically change the global population for the better.
