Meghan started her career in research in the robotics lab at RIC working to develop high tech, low cost devices for individuals who sustained a stroke or TBI. She moved to Colorado to pursue new education in critical care, program development and quality improvement. There she worked closely with her team to develop new protocols for people who sustained SAH, delirium prevention, minimally conscious interventions for patients off sedation and COVID recovery.
