A Philadelphia native-turned-southerner, Megan is a practicing Architect at Houser Walker Architecture in Atlanta.  She brings a background of architectural theory and design embodied with ecology, urbanism, and material health.  Her training at Georgia Tech and Yale School of Architecture led to a deep interest in ecological architecture, culminating in a summer spent on a Bronze Age archaeological dig in Turkey.  Megan takes a research-based approach to design, seeking to create buildings that work as an environment as well as an experience.  She attends most Atlanta United games, reads an excessive amount on history and design, and bakes a stellar pecan pie.
