Brief Bio
As a program associate here at CTG, Megan’s focus is on project definition, project planning, work plan development, data collection and analysis, preparing and planning articles and reports, and designing and conducting group facilitation activities related to certain projects. Megan began working at CTG as a program assistant in September 2012. Prior to working at CTG, Megan worked with the Committee on Open Government as an intern in which she focused on city and town clerks as well as IT professionals working in government at the local level. The research was conducted within the State of New York and was designed to study and assess how the use of, or lack of, technology affected management and access to government documents. She also interned at CTG and worked on an ongoing project to develop a shared code enforcement data repository for cities in the Capital Region.

In December 2012, Megan completed her graduate study at the University at Albany’s College of Computing and Information with a Master’s degree in Information Science with concentrated studies in Archives and Records Management. Her graduate studies at Albany focused primarily on preservation and conservation management in archives administration, library services, records management and procedures (i.e. inventory, records and information systems, management policies and development, etc.). She also holds a Bachelor’s in History from SUNY Albany.
