Megan is the Deputy General Counsel at the Texas State Board of Pharmacy and is passionate about serving the citizens of Texas, particularly in relation to the opioid crisis. Through her work at the Board, she is able to effect change both on an individual level and state-wide scale. Megan prepares and presents recommended changes to pharmacy regulations to the Board, assists with the administration of the agency, and leads teams relating to public outreach and providing access to the Texas Prescription Monitoring Program, which tracks the dispensing of controlled substances, to law enforcement for investigations into illicit drugs and researchers for epidemiological studies. Megan also leads the Board’s legal internship program through which she has mentored numerous high school, college, and law students.
Outside of the office, Megan believes involvement in the local community creates a deeper sense of home. She participates in cleanups with Keep Austin Beautiful and serves as a cleanup site leader during Keep Austin Beautiful Days. She also delivers lunches with Meals on Wheels and More, volunteers through the Austin Young Lawyers Association’s projects, and collaborates with a team to set up apartments for refugee families through the Refugee Services of Texas.
In her free time, Megan can often be found on a patio with her miniature schnauzer and a good book.
