Megan serves as the Cancer Research Foundation's Administration Manager. She has a Bachelor of Arts from Loyola University. Megan has a varied background in accounting, office management, and catering. She started a small design firm with her husband and has managed all of the corporate, office and financial documents pertaining to the running of a small company. She also has had an entrepreneurial stint as a caterer - working with two of her sisters in an independent, local catering company and café. Again, Megan's business training came to good use in that small, family start-up company which they later sold. Megan also has extensive work experience in accounting and has worked for several companies in their finance departments. As a mother of four, Megan has now turned her career focus in to a desire to making a difference. The Cancer Research Foundation is an opportunity for her to use her skills working for an organization that has the power and desire to have an impact on society.
"I owe a great deal to the Cancer Research Foundation for giving me a head start. This financial help made the difference between my getting a fast and successful start, and my other wise struggling to obtain the necessary funds to get my research program started."Elaine Fuchs, Ph.D.
