She studied International Politics as an undergraduate and then gained a Masters degree in Food and Water Security at Aberystwyth University. Following this, she worked as a lambing assistant on a farm in Devon before beginning an internship with the Sustainable Food Trust. Megan now works full time as Communications Manager for the SFT, managing the website, newsletter and social media pages. She also works on SFT policy, researching and drafting briefings, press releases and articles, contributes to SFT campaigns and plays a key role in organising events.
