Megan is a Brisbane and Ipswich-based paediatrician in public and private practice, and mum to two small children.
She completed a Bachelor of Pharmacy as class Valedictorian in 2000 at the University of Queensland, later completing her Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery in 2005 taking out the Magdelene-Brodie Prize in Paediatrics. After many years of training she finally obtained her Fellowship in General Paediatrics to the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 2014, and she is currently completing her second sub-specialty Fellowship in Community Child Health along with studying a Masters in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
Asides from writing for her weekly children’s health and food blog “Dr Megs – Paeds and Feeds,” she gained notoriety for publishing a systematic review on the use of medical marijuana in children, and has more recently assumed the role of “Resident Paediatrician” for online parenting resource, “Parent TV.” She has worked at Ipswich Hospital since 2016 and worked privately at Greenslopes since 2015. Together with her business partners she helped open a new private paediatric practice in March 2018 – “Paeds in a Pod, North Lakes.”
When she's not working or studying Megan loves to cook, run, sing, garden, paint, play with her children and generally overcommit herself to activities. She is quite partial to the odd glass or two of quality champagne and/or wine, which she thinks compensates for her chronic lack of sleep.
