Megan spent her childhood in Big Stone Gap, Virginia, which is a small mountain town nestled between the Tennessee and Kentucky borders. Her family has a rich musical heritage, and many family gatherings were spent singing along with guitars, banjos and tambourines. Megan received a Bachelors of Science and a Masters of Arts in teaching from James Madison University before beginning a teaching career in Fairfax County. For eight years Megan taught fifth and sixth grade at Floris Elementary, where she grew to love the Floris community. However, in 2015, she left the classroom to pursue a calling in worship ministry. Megan has been a vocalist and instrumentalist with the Floris UMC contemporary band, Full Circle Band, since 2008, which helped inspire her passion for worship and music ministry. She is now pursuing a certification in Christian studies at Wesley Theological Seminary.
Megan is responsible for leading worship with Full Circle Band at the 9:15 a.m. blended music service and 5 p.m. contemporary service. She coordinates the band and aligns the music ministry with the sermons and vision of the church.
Idea of a perfect day: Exploring a new place and seeking out an adventure.
Most people don’t know this about me: Megan has been onboard a zero gravity flight (aka the Vomit Comet)!
Most interesting vacation: Viewing the Northern Lights, hiking behind waterfalls, observing breaching humpback whales and eating shark.
