background / experience / Vision /

Megan worked for many years in the Preservation Office of the City of Miami and the Planning Office of the City of Coral Gables. She began her career at the office of Dover, Kohl & Partners as a Town Planner.  She graduated from The Benjamin School in North Palm Beach, FL, she has a degree in art history from the College of William & Mary and a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Miami.

Megan has led numerous large-scale documentation projects, including the neighborhoods of Shenandoah, Silver Bluff, Allapattah, Grove Park, and Brownsville in Miami, and the cities of Anna Maria, FL and Lake Wales, FL. Each of these documentation projects result in a book publication on the history of the place. Megan has extensive experience in development permitting, zoning, and land use policy through her municipal work. She has a unique perspective on the ways that zoning and land use regulations can be tailored to preserve a community’s unique sense of place.

I am inspired by the writings and the life experience of William Morris, Fredrick Law Olmsted and other architects and urban designers of the late 19th century. Borrowing the words of early 20th-century influencer Edward Bok, I strive to make the world a bit better or more beautiful because I have lived in it. To me, this means planning cities, neighborhoods and public spaces for the safety and enjoyment of people, and the protection of our natural resources.
