Bio


Megan is a Senior Communications Specialist in our Harrisburg office with over 16 years of professional experience. She is responsible for implementing public outreach and engagement campaigns using public relations and two-way engagement strategies. She frequently collaborates with the Graphics team to develop digital media posts, infographics, interactive maps, project branding, and survey analysis. Megan is also bilingual – speaking both English and Spanish. As such, she is able to supplement her work by providing translation services in verbal, written and digital formats.

 

Megan’s language and communication skills stem from her time growing up in Puerto Rico. She was born in California, but was raised in Puerto Rico where she lived for 21 years. While there, she primarily spoke Spanish while learning English daily. Megan went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.) and Masters of Business Administration (M.B.A.) in Marketing and Global Management. Over the years, Megan has been recognized for building positive community relationships and gaining understanding and support for some of the most challenging transportation initiatives for clientele throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

 

Having joined McCormick Taylor in the Summer of 2021, Megan has truly enjoyed the collaboration and teamwork she has experienced, noting that everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand regardless of their workload. Megan is currently working on communications and outreach support for the Pennsylvania State Transportation Commission (STC) and PennDOT Center for Program Development and Management. She recently helped develop a static infographic supporting the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and their first public comment period. She feels the project is important because it allows the public to learn about the STIP and other PennDOT planning programs. Internally, Megan is also a part of the committee providing input on the Harrisburg office renovation.
