People ignore design that ignores people.
A consummate team player, Megan interacts with all touch points at Wert & Company to facilitate successful project management, and has been instrumental in streamlining work processes and embrace of the latest research technologies.
With her innate thirst for knowledge, Megan researches a vast range of literature and intelligence – blogs, critical analyses, annuals and magazines of every sort – employing a synthetic understanding of the design world… encompassing industrial design, user experience, communications, architecture and design strategy. She plays an invaluable role identifying emerging talent, and brings a discerning eye to portfolio evaluations.
Megan joined Wert & Company in 2007, connecting her background in art history to the world of design. She took a sabbatical from 2010-2012 to complete a Fulbright grant in South Korea, where she lived with Korean farmers, learned to plant rice, went ice fishing, all while maintaining a full-time teaching schedule.
Prior to joining Wert & Company, Megan received a B.A. in Art History and Japanese from Vassar College. She is currently pursuing a M.S. in Early Childhood General Education at Bank Street College with the intention of cultivating the next generation of design thinkers at the preschool level!
