Megan started in gymnastics before she could walk. At 11 months old, her parents signed her up for parent-tot gymnastics as a fun way to be active, and she never looked back. As a young child she quickly moved up in recreational classes and joined her first competitive team when she was five years old before entering Kindergarten. She joined her current gym Gymfinity Gymnastics after her first year of competition.

Megan placed third on uneven bars at the 2016 Level 4 State Championships. She tested out of level 5, skipped level 6 and quickly moved up to level 7 for the 2018 season. She earned a bronze medal on uneven bars at the State Championships, qualifying to Regionals. As a level 8 gymnast in 2019, Megan won the balance beam title with a 9.725 at the State Championships. She qualified to the Region 4 Championships where she finished sixth in the all-around and third on balance beam. Megan qualified to the 2020 Level 9 State Championships but was unable to compete due to COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, Megan placed fourth on floor exercise and second on floor exercise at the State Championships. She qualified to the Level 9 Western Nationals after finishing fifth in the all-around, second on balance beam and third on floor exercise at the Region 4 Championships.

When Megan isn't busy training over 16 hours each week in the gym, she enjoys writing, art and spending time with her younger brother. Currently, Megan is an honor student at Glacier Creek Middle School where she is member of the Student Council. She was the District Finalist for Yahara River Writing Contest.
