She has a BA from USC in American Studies and English, an MBA from Boston University with an emphasis in finance and nonprofit management, and joined CLARA with a strong interest in integrating economic development with the support of innovative artistic programming. While in graduate school, Megan served as the Assistant General Manager at Emerson Stage in Boston, where her tenure was marked by significant improvements in ticket sales and operational efficiency.

She is excited to provide support and guidance to all of CLARA’s tenants and arts organizations.
