Megan is originally from Seoul, South Korea, and moved to the US when she was 10. Megan attended Dartmouth and graduated cum laude with a degree in Biology; she also received an Academic Citation for Excellence in developmental biology, the HHMI Undergraduate Fellowship for research, and James O. Presidential Scholarship. Her proudest collegiate accomplishment, however, is being part of the nationally-ranked lightweight men’s rowing team as coxswain and winning third place in the country her senior year. Following a two-year stint as a research technician at Mass General Hospital, she is now a medical student at Harvard Medical School’s Harvard-MIT Health Sciences Technology (HST) program. She is taking a year off to study the genetics of congenital heart disease as an HHMI Medical Fellow.
Megan has experience teaching and mentoring in many capacities. She has been tutoring in subjects varying from biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and test prep. At Dartmouth, she worked as a Peer Tutor for the Dartmouth Academic Skills Center for four years; her senior year, she was selected as the Student-Athlete Biology Resident Expert, where she tutored and mentored other student-athletes who were in biology courses of varying levels. She enjoys not only teaching material, but also helping students to be more efficient and manage time wisely.
Outside of school and lab, Megan enjoys making ice cream, tending to her growing succulent collection, hosting game nights, biking around town, and watching Youtube videos of puppies.
