Megan grew up moving around the country as an Air Force brat and later with her husband before finally planting roots in Adams County in 1996. She became an active community volunteer in Upper Adams School District (her three sons are Biglerville HS Grads and Canner athletes), with Collaborating for Youth in Adams County, in St Francis Xavier parish, as well as involvement in various local events. The Community involvement has earned her lifelong friendships and wonderful connections – and it continues.
After raising three boys with her husband Nick, and holding a variety of part-time jobs over those years, Megan started working as a broker’s assistant in 2011. Within a couple of years, she decided it was time to earn her real estate license and joined the ranks of Realtors in 2014. Since then, she’s grown as a listing agent and as an Accredited Buyer’s Representative. Working with first time home buyers is her favorite – combining her love of education, finance, and home.
Megan loves Adams County’s agriculture, small businesses, and history. Her clients appreciate her knowledge of the area as they consider their next home.
