At UGA, Meg works to design and implement instructional development programs and events for faculty, with the goals of positively impacting student learning at UGA and increasing the probability of faculty career success and efficacy in the classroom. In addition, she supports educational development initiatives for the First-Year Odyssey Seminar Program, UGA's Quality Enhancement Plan. Meg’s daily activities include facilitating faculty fellows groups and UGA's faculty learning communities, performing formative evaluation of faculty instruction, teaching workshops, and facilitating mechanisms to recognize and honor excellent teaching at UGA.
Prior to joining the Center for Teaching and Learning in February 2017, Meg was the Director of Training and Education for the Landry Cancer Biology Consortium at Harvard University and a Lecturer of Genetics at Harvard Medical School. Meg is an alumna of the University of South Carolina, where she completed a B.S. in Biology and a Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. Following her Ph.D., she performed postdoctoral research in epigenetics and gene-environment interactions at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Texas A&M Health Science Center.
Outside of the CTL, Meg enjoys trying new restaurants, road trips, and binge watching shows on Netflix (especially period dramas); and spending time outside with husband Nick, son Andrew, and their golden retriever Rutledge.
