Q&A with Megan Allen

  • What is something you have learned from your work and collaborations?
    We can accomplish so much more when we work together!  
  • What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
    My dad gives great advice and once told me: “There’s no point in fearing a lion when there’s no lion in sight” and it is always something that has stuck out to me and I keep in mind!  
  • What/who inspires/motivates you?
    My family. 
  • What is one challenge you have faced in your career and how did you overcome it?
    I have been working at the PPC for two years now, so I would definitely say the biggest challenge is adapting to working during a pandemic.
