Megan's family has had a membership at Holimont ski club since she was born. Megan started out like most people skiing but switched to snowboarding when she was four to keep up with her older siblings and cousins who were on the snowboard race team for the club at the time.
Megan's biggest influence on her career has been her Dad, He was her first coach when she started racing, and continues to be Megans biggest supporter at races.
This past season Megan created some of her most memorable moments in her career, grabbing 4th and 8th at World Championships and 1st at Austrian Nationals. She was also 3rd in the Europa Cup overall.
In the off season Megan balances working with off snow training activities such as hiking, biking, and waterskiing.
