Nice to meet you!

I'm Megan, a Chicago native turned transplant Iowan living in Des Moines, Iowa. I love cracking the spine of a good book and have a passion for offbeat roadside attractions (which you can read about on my blog, Olio in Iowa). 

I've always been a writer of some sort, but in 2014 I began helping a variety of clients—from local startups to established nonprofits—share their stories online. 


  • I'm a freelance writer, editor and digital media consultant currently available to collaborate on new and exciting projects. 
  • I'm also the Social Media Manager at the Des Moines Art Center. It's a pretty amazing place to work
  • A few years ago I started a blog to document my evolving love for roadside attractions. If World's Largest things make your heart beat a little faster too, consider giving Olio in Iowa or Wandering the World's Largest a read.
  • In 2013, I graduated from Drake University in Des Moines with dual degrees in journalism and anthropology. 
  • From 2012 to the end of 2014, I worked as the Iowa-based editor for a media company called Silicon Prairie News. Sound interesting? Skim some of the things I wrote
