Hobbies and Interests
  • "I love hockey. I played defense since I was a kid. My idol was Bobby Orr, and I’ve always been a huge leaf fan. Now my favorite player is Morgan Rielly (I think he should have been captain). I am also a bit of a comic book nerd. I grew up learning how to read with my Dad’s Spiderman comics. I love cooking, developing new delicious and nutritious recipes and reading all the nutrition and health sciences books, along with the occasional Femme forward book from Reese’s Book Club ;) I also love yoga, running, meditation and journaling. Oh… and I am part of the not-for-profit theater company that puts on a comedy show every summer to raise money for local charities, it’s called Players Toronto. I used to be an actor/singer!"

Fun Fact about  Megan!
  • Megan still has a hard time explaining to her big Irish family that she can’t have a beer with them because of her celiac disease! Instead, they bond over hockey. Megan played hockey all her life and is a huge leafs fan. Her two front teeth are fake, but not because of a hockey fight, because of bone loss complications due to undiagnosed celiac disease. When her autoimmune diseases were at their worst, Megan found comfort in comic books and sunflowers… a little bit of yellow and a Spiderman comic makes it hard to be unhappy!
