Megan’s diverse educational background consists of a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master’s degree with a focus on writing, a Juris Doctor, and an exposure to American Sign Language (ASL). Her experience in managing a law firm, and approach across disciplines, have equipped her with the practical skills to navigate and address the complexities of access to justice in Arkansas.
