President, Artwright Ventures

Megan loves making digital products for kids and teachers. Over the last two decades, she has worked on teams with some of the smartest people in educational publishing building some of the best programs for learning today. If you know a child they’re likely to have a product in their classroom she touched in some way; and if you know a teacher, she has probably picked their brains or harassed them to get feedback on a product she is building. Megan never gets tired of seeing something she made get used in a classroom to help someone learn. She also likes making spreadsheets. Previously, Megan was the Director of Product Management at Pearson North America, and a Senior Producer at Scholastic. Sean Oakes
