Megan was introduced to Palliative Care NSW in July 2015, as part of an internship program while completing a Masters of Policy and Applied Social Research at Macquarie University, concluding a study on palliative care volunteering in aged care facilities during this time.
Since then Megan has worked as a Policy Officer for Palliative Care NSW undertaking research into the experiences of volunteers in paediatric palliative care, CALD communities and palliative care and most recently Homelessness and Palliative Care.
Megan is now working in the role of Deputy CEO, assisting Linda Hansen in the day to day running of the organisation. Megan is also assisting other members of the team in the ongoing development of future research projects as well as expanding stakeholder relationships and programmes across NSW.
Megan strongly believes in equity of access to high quality palliative care as a human right, and this remains a priority for her in this current role.
