Megan is the Program Director and cannot be more excited to be working in the arts to help benefit the community! Born and raised in Switzerland, Megan fell in love with the arts at an early age. At 15, she decided to travel to the United States to pursue her photography dreams. She attended St. Johnsbury Academy in Vermont; taking photography classes all through High School. After graduating and winning the Photography Award, Megan moved to Colorado to attend the University of Denver. There, she worked hard on a degree in Fine Arts and tackled many photography projects under the guidance of Roddy MacInnes. During her third year at the University, Megan received a grant with which she traveled from coast to coast in Australia and lived in New Zealand for six months to complete a photography project. In 2011, she graduated with distinction and won the Denver West Outstanding Student Award for her work in Fine Arts. After University, Megan moved to Crested Butte and fell in love with the Gunnison Valley. She has lived in the Valley since and has loved every minute of it. When not at the Arts Center, Megan can be found snowboarding, cross-country skiing, running, camping and paddle boarding with her puppy Louie.
