New Staff on Board
Maegan wants to live in a world where we all take care of one another and live as equals. As the Program Specialist for HealthCorps University, she is committed to collaborating with schools, communities, and health champions to create positive growth and cultural change. She believes in the power of education and exposure as a catalyst for this change. Her favorite part about working for HealthCorps is having the rare opportunity to put her personal passions into action on a day-to-day basis with other like-minded individuals. She grew up just outside of New Orleans in Paradis, LA and received her Bachelor’s in Nutrition from Louisiana State University. Prior to HealthCorps, she worked in the nonprofit sector to provide vital social-emotional skills to educators and district leaders. Maegan is most proud of her ability to take on challenges, big or small. When she isn’t fighting the good HealthCorps fight, you can find her exploring new restaurants or cooking with her husband, Cole (and usually in the company of her dogs, Ellie and Atticus). Maegan dreams of developing technology that makes whole wellness a convenient, tangible choice for all.
Emily believes that everyone should have the tools to take ownership of their health, and there is no better tool than education.
As the Product Development Specialist at HealthCorps, she’s working on enhancing HC’s digital curriculum on CK12. She currently works out of the CK12 office in Palo Alto. Her favorite part about working for HealthCorps is being surrounded by passionate coworkers who share the same goal of increasing access to health education.
A native of Cupertino, CA, she graduated with a B.A. from Dartmouth College in 2017, majoring in Neuroscience and minoring in English.
When she has free time, she is either playing with her dog, reading sci-fi novels, watching crime shows, hiking, or napping. One interesting fact about her is that she has over 1,000 pictures of her dog on her cell. She’s just a tad obsessed with him.
