Megan is World Child Cancer’s Programme Coordinator in Mexico. Since finishing her BA Hons Geography in 2011 she has spent a large amount of time in the Spanish - speaking world. During her degree and ERASMUS year in Santander, Spain, she focused her studies on health and development. After graduating she travelled to Chile and spent three years working with NGO’s and teaching English. This experience sparked her interest in child health. She returned to the UK to study an MSc in paediatric nursing. Whilst on this masters programme she was awarded a travel scholarship and academic achievement awards which facilitated her research project abroad where she was able to explore her particular area of interest, children's palliative care.  Since registering as a children’s nurse she has worked in many areas of acute children’s health, including children's oncology and PICU. Moving to Mexico has led to the opportunity to coordinate and develop World Child Cancer's programmes in Mexico, an area she is very passionate about.

In her free time she enjoys being outdoors, exploring new cultures and food as well as keeping fit.
