Junior Consultant

B.A. (Hons), MSc

Megan is a young professional with a passion for helping under-served communities, and she strongly believes good data is an important part of that equation. She has over four years of experience in research and evaluation activities; in her time with Cathexis, Megan has been involved in over 15 evaluations.

Megan holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Toronto and a Masters of Science in International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies from the London School of Economics and Political Science. She was fascinated to learn about the use of randomized control trials for evaluating international development interventions, which first piqued her interest in evaluation and data-driven programming. To that end, Megan went on to work in monitoring and evaluation in India with the Aga Khan Foundation as a Youth Fellow.

Community involvement

Megan currently volunteers with Out of the Cold in Toronto, and also serves as a Unit Guider for a Brownie unit. Her previous experience volunteering with Casey House in Toronto, as well as the Naz Foundation in New Delhi, left her with a passion for health equity policy and programming.
