She now utilizes metaphorical projectors and mirrors to shine a light on micro and macro social systems that when adjusted, improve student and employee success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

As an engineer turned educator, Meagan focuses on helping others intentionally engineer inclusion™ in education and the workforce.
