Smiling woman with long brown hair

Megan Derry

February 14, 2023

Megan was introduced to 826 National while working as a graphic designer at an advertising firm in Kansas City, as they were a client of hers. After beginning the creative writing program at the University of Kansas, she discovered her love of visual storytelling, which led her to find her passion for graphic design. The opportunity to design for 826 National’s mission was an easy choice for her. In her free time, she teaches yoga, is probably on her third coffee of the day, and could spend endless amounts of time perusing an independent bookshop’s cookbook section.

Pronouns: she/her
