Megan graduated from the University of Minnesota with a self-designed degree in Retail Merchandising, Advertising, and English. She spent her college years working at H&M as a visual merchandiser, dreaming of the day when she could open her own vintage clothing shop. Her interest in Scandinavian design and culture led to a semester abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, and then to an internship with DIS – Study Abroad in Scandinavia post-graduation. After returning to the Twin Cities, Megan continued to work at the DIS North American Office on their Enrollment Services team for five years. During her time with DIS, she advised students on academics and visas and traveled the U.S. promoting the program.
Megan received her Master’s degree in Intercultural Relations through the University of the Pacific in conjunction with the Intercultural Communication Institute. Her capstone work focused on developing an intercultural training for study abroad staff in order to build their intercultural communication skills and cultural self-awareness. Driven to empower students and promote transformational study abroad experiences, Megan joined SFS as an Institutional Relations Manager in 2015.
