An Arkansas native (Go Razorbacks!), Megan moved to Wilmington in 2014, with her family from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers! Pirates! Pens!), on what would be their final “PCS” (Permanent Change of Station) orders, courtesy of her husband’s 22-year active duty career in the US Coast Guard.
Megan is a fan of ‘the athlete’ and all sports in general- from the sidelines of her own children’s games to her most recent sports indulgence- NASCAR. “Whe in Rome….” or perhaps, when In North Carolina…. When she is not shuttling kids to various activities or volunteering with her local beach community, she enjoys reading, running, and being outdoors.
Her passion is people. She considers each patient a personal gift and feels honored to be able to make a positive impact in the restoration of one’s health and physical function.
Megan resides in Kure Beach, with her husband, two children, one sassy cat, and one lazy Labrador Retriever.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
