About Megan

Hi! My name is Megan (she/her). I had it instilled in me throughout college and my career that personal branding is of the utmost importance and that my website should be strictly professional… But it turns out that was bullshit because I am not a brand!

I’ll be gradually taking over my carefully curated personal brand with my own personality and non-career-oriented interests in the coming weeks/months/whatever. So be ready! 😈

Career Journey

I’m a web developer and community builder in the Cleveland area specializing in WordPress. I’m very involved in the WordPress open source project and am the Head of Community at Codeable.

I’ve always had an interest in computers. I first dabbled in HTML and CSS on Neopets when I was 12 years old. I received my Bachelors of Science in Technology degree from Bowling Green State University in 2014. While attending, I completed three co-ops/internships in the fields of graphic design, photography, and web design/development.

After college, I worked at KHM Travel Group for 6 and a half years. During this time, I grew my role from Front End Web Developer to Technology Manager. While at KHM Travel, I grew a lot as a person and as a professional. From contributing to industry publications to leading our company’s security initiatives, the value I provided extended beyond lines of code. One of my strengths is my ability to maintain strong relationships with contractors, partners, and fellow team members.

Roughly half a year into the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, I left my position at KHM Travel to join the Blackbird Digital team as a Senior Developer. During my time there, I both worked on client projects as well as co-hosted our WordPress development podcast, In The Loop. My favorite episode is the WordPress Agency Panel Discussion, but you can also catch a recap of our best moments in the Season 1 Highlights episode.

My passion for community building brought me to Codeable in 2021, where I serve as the main point of contact for the 700+ WordPress developers (“experts”) on our platform. In this role, I create and improve educational resources for the experts, manage all processes related to the expert experience, and facilitate discussions to generate feedback on how to improve their experience.
