Prior to joining Nous, Megan was an Australian diplomat. She worked as a justice reform expert advising governments on improving justice sector coordination and people’s pathways through the justice sector. During a posting to Timor-Leste she worked with government, private sector and not-for-profit stakeholders to design, deliver and evaluate programs that responded to economic and social issues. This included work with civil society to strengthen its accountability function, encouraging greater use of evidence in policymaking and fostering emerging leaders.
Megan ran Australia’s electoral observation missions to help the Timorese Electoral Commission deliver national elections. She has worked in Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Fiji and Nauru and at the World Bank in Washington, where she developed safeguards for its legal identity programming.
Megan loves learning languages (she speaks French, Japanese and Tetun) and exploring new corners of the world. Closer to home, she enjoys following politics and spending time with her two young girls.
