Hi, I’m Megan. I started writing at http://www.megandaviamikhail.com in 2019. I’m a licensed attorney and freelance writer. I substitute teach at the local public high school and volunteer for my town’s library board as a trustee. I write a series of articles called, “A Parent Perspective,” and volunteer as a board member for my local school district’s foundation at d181foundation.org. I am a research associate for an educational consulting company: connor-associates.com. I edit articles for nutritionchopped.com. I am a mom to two fantastic children (biased) and wife to an adorable husband (ditto).
My writing focuses on topics including:
- Keen Living: A Practice in Well-being
- Memoir writing
- Book Reviews & Comparatives
- Profiles of Inspirational People
These topics are explored with the purpose of sharing and inspiring self-reflection. I hope to share compassion and build a community for creativity. Join me by signing up for emails, and you will always be first to receive my posts.
