She played water polo and was on the swim team all through high school, and got a scholarship to play Division 1 water polo at Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, California.

After college Meg went to graduate school to get her teaching certification and masters in teaching at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.
