Megan Fitzgerald joined Smart Growth Vermont as an intern in September and has been assisting staff with membership management and researching and writing articles for our monthly e-newsletter.
Currently in her junior year at the University of Vermont, Megan’s major is Public Communication, with a minor in Political Science and Community International Development. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering for programs like the Campus Kitchen and the American Cancer Society. Her interest in Community Development began after taking relevant courses in college and examining her own hometown in Virginia.
Megan plans on studying in Belize during the spring semester through a service learning project. She hopes to one day work in the nonprofit sector with an organization that aims to strengthen communities. When she’s not reading MSNBC or hanging out with friends, Megan enjoys exploring new towns and writing for the Vermont Cynic, UVM’s school newspaper.
