Megan’s extensive organizational leadership experience allows her to work side-by-side with entrepreneurs and C-suite executives, providing them with pragmatic guidance and sustainable solutions grounded in the realities of today’s fast-changing business environment.
As a second-career attorney, Megan’s understanding of the challenges her clients face is rich and deeply layered. In addition to serving as a founder and CEO of her own ventures, Megan has held leadership positions with a number of distinguished organizations, including Pacific Science Center, the Washington State Bar Association and Foundation, and NPower, a first-of-its-kind network of technology providers solving the IT challenges of a rapidly evolving charitable sector. She leverages the knowledge, resources and relationships she has built over the course of her rewarding career to devise comprehensive strategies for the businesses she serves.
At home in the startup community, Megan is more than a lawyer and legal strategist. She is an award-winning entrepreneur, an active angel investor, and a highly sought-after consultant, speaker, and educator on governance and organizational strategy. Clients especially appreciate the empathy and humor she brings to table when collaborating to take a promising idea from the back of a cocktail napkin to the market.
What inspires her is possibility. From making life easier to solving global challenges, Megan believes in the transformative potential of innovation and technology to improve the human condition. She is especially interested in the ways technology can be leveraged to advance environmental, social, and governance (ESG) corporate accountability, and to shift power and improve equity in education, law, finance, and sports.
Megan is a loud and influential voice for gender equality. She is the founder of the FBomb Breakfast Club – a peer support community of nearly 5,000 female founders and women business owners that earned a spot as a finalist for Geekwire Newcomer of the Year 2018. The same year, she also founded Diana | SportsTV, a digital streaming network that took a massive swing at equalizing coverage of women’s sports. Graham & Walker (formerly Female Founders Alliance) honored Megan with its first Champion Advocate Award, Seattle Magazine named her a person of influence, and Seattle University School of Law recognized her as one of its notable alumni. In addition to being an active angel investor, Megan is proud to be a limited partner in several venture capital funds founded and led by women, including funds at Portfolia, First Row Partners, and Graham & Walker. She currently serves on the board of the King County Chapter of Washington Women Lawyers.
Megan loves bicycles and whiteboards. You’ll often find her in close proximity to one or the other. She concedes that she is “a woefully slow but cheerfully optimistic” member of the northwest endurance sports community; if she’s not racing, she’s on the sidelines ringing the cowbell and supporting others to the finish line. In 2022, she’ll be training to follow the inaugural 10-day Tour de France Femmes while writing about the new rules for the corporate boardroom.
