As the Case Manager at Day One, Megan supports and provides services for young survivors of intimate partner violence.
Megan identifies as a Latina born and raised in the South Bronx, a fact that she takes pride in sharing with the world. She attended an Early College High School and received a High School Diploma in conjunction with an Associate’s Degree of Arts. While in high school, Megan was a peer leader for a program that educated youth in New York City on sexual and reproductive health and also assisted in training adolescent health care providers on how to improve communication with their patients. This work was the catalyst that triggered her passions for social justice, empowering youth and birthing justice.
Megan’s passions and identities highly influenced her decision to major in Women and Gender Studies with a concentration in Sexuality, and a minor in Africana/Puerto Rican Latinx Studies at Hunter College. She enjoys volunteering for events in her community that are geared towards youth empowerment and bringing awareness to the issues that have significant impact on young women of color. Megan is excited to join the Day One team, supporting young survivors of IPV and looks forward to growing within the social services field.
