She enjoys spending her free time cross-stitching, napping or watching Chopped. She's always up for a trip to Steak & Shake (for a garlic burger) or a rousing game of LIFE. Megan enjoys serving in whatever capacity she can and is always looking for ways to connect students on campus with churches in the community.
