But beyond her body and looks, Megan has an extreme athletic background. As Captain of her high school track and field team, she holds 4 school and 1 state records. And, at Roger Williams University, Megan was honored All-Academic on the Women's Varsity Cross Country Team and was Top Ten in the Conference 3 years in a row. She explains, "Running has always been the foundation for my love of fitness and health."
Megan's interest are diverse including being an AFAA certified personal trainer since 2006. Currently, she teaches Pilates classes at a local gym. Megan says, "It's a little known fact that I tried for years to cover up to my jock high school friends that I played the alto saxophone in the jazz band and I also taught myself how to play the organ!"
Megan's fitness performances are also a family affair. "My mom is my official bikini seamstress!", she admits. "I am so appreciative of her talents and undeniable support."
Professionally, the 25 year old college graduate says, "My eyes are set on NYC and it is my dream to sign a fitness modeling contract with a top agency." And competitively, Megan explains, "It would be honored to win the Model Universe Championships because of the qualities that this federation possesses. Wholesome class, respect and pure credibility in such an ever-changing industry. Class never goes out of style. It is so important to me as a bikini athlete to have a family like Fitness Universe around me so that I understand how to represent myself as more than just a competitor. Winning the competition would solidify my ambition to be that role model so that I can help others feel good about themselves through prioritizing their health, making time for fitness, and building self-confidence."
