Professional and Educational Background
Megan became interested in construction early on via her mom’s career in the home building industry. With her mom’s encouragement to learn the industry through hands-on experience, Megan started working as a laborer on a framing crew in her teens. After earning a BA in Architectural Studies from the University of Kansas, she spent eight years in Chicago as an Architect designing and managing a range of projects (e.g., performing arts, multifamily, mixed use, TOD). Over time Megan gravitated toward the construction side of her projects, preferring to spend time in the field — an organic move away from the architect’s desk and toward the never-the-same-day-twice dynamic of construction operations. Acknowledging her new direction, she moved to Colorado to earn her MS in Real Estate and Construction Management at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business.
While pursuing her master’s, Megan worked as a Construction Supervisor with Habitat for Humanity and Americorps, leading crews and coordinating 50-100 volunteers daily to build affordable housing. She spent the next 10+ years in project manager roles focusing on affordable housing, multifamily, construction risk management, and construction defects/forensics. Through this period of her career, Megan oversaw ~$1B in construction while managing projects, assessing risk and technical compliance with codes and standards (e.g., zoning, constructability, energy performance, ADA), and acting as an Owner’s Rep. Megan joined CFC in 2020 as a Senior Project Manager, quickly proving herself to be a highly effective leader. She is a Registered Architect in Colorado and LEED Accredited Professional certified by the US Green Building Council.
What Megan Values Most About Working at CFC
What sets CFC apart for Megan is the quality of the people and their sincere commitment to improving. She wholeheartedly trusts CFC’s leaders, who pair competence with a sense of humor. She explains, “Construction is challenging on any given day, so we have to be able to laugh and have a good time when we’re doing it. And there’s a constant and genuine desire to improve, whether in training, safety, quality, retention, or onboarding.”
While Chicago native Megan moved to Colorado for school, she stayed for the sunshine, mountains, and great people — including her husband, who she met here. With three kids active in sports, Megan doesn’t have a great deal of free time. But you’ll occasionally find her horseback riding or playing golf (poorly).
