Megan Sheridan is a natural-born communicator who can trace her family lineage back to several generations of writers, thinkers and lawyers (though we won’t hold that last one against her). Like her predecessors, Megan is an energetic crusader for knowledge and justice, particularly as it relates to food systems equality and safety.
As a student at the University of St. Thomas, Megan served as president of the school’s “Green Team,” an environmental action group that championed university-wide dialogues on sustainability and launched a community garden on campus.
Before joining Haberman, Megan was a project manager with a place-based non-profit community development corporation. For several years, she worked with the businesses lining East Franklin Avenue in South Minneapolis on everything from designing new storefronts and developing social media plans to urban farming and bike/pedestrian advocacy. She has also managed a gluten-free bakery and still writes a gluten-free cooking blog.
Just because she enjoys blogging and eating, though, doesn’t mean Megan is sedentary – in fact, she enjoys a full range of grueling indoor and outdoor activities including kickboxing, bike commuting and rock climbing. She’s had a pilot’s license for years. Of course, Megan also enjoys hockey (which is somewhat of a prerequisite for working at Haberman) and served as captain of her high school team.
