“The elements of architecture are not visual units;
they are encounters, confrontations
that interact with memory.

– Juhani Pallasmaa



Megan joined JLA with a background in educational, institutional and commercial projects. Her thesis, focused on creating spaces to promote religious and spiritual pluralism in Paris, challenged her to think about architecture as an active participant of a living city. Originally from the Bay Area, Megan is excited to explore more of the eccentricities of the city and contribute to the patchwork of the region. Megan is in the thick of studying for her architectural licensure. When she needs a break she explores the city on runs or spends time rock climbing. She is inspired by the outdoors and loves to get away on camping trips.

Megan studied architecture at California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo and achieved her minor in Sustainable Environments. She studied at École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture Val de Seine in Paris while completing her degree.
