Megan continues to write short fiction pieces. In 2015, she earned her RN license and worked as a nurse for a brief period then returned to the field of education as a tutor at Advanced Learning Center.

It quickly turned into a passion, and Megan began selling her artwork, which also includes geometric watercolor paintings, collages, and illustrations, with the St. Pete Indie Market and Tampa Indie Flea in a homemade teepee. She will continue to promote education, the arts, and literature within her community.
