Megan is a reporter for Pique Newsmagazine. She currently lives in Whistler, after moving to the resort from Ottawa in 2016 to work as a news and sports reporter for the Whistler Question. When she's not working, you can usually find her jumping into lakes, hiking up mountains in the summer, boarding down them in the winter, or playing beer league hockey if it's a Thursday. Before moving to B.C., she interned with CTV's Canada AM and worked as a communications officer with Farm Radio Trust, a non-governmental organization in Malawi. She attended Carleton University in Ottawa, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism degree and a minor in international law. She is also renowned for her road trip playlists.
