Megan’s professional experience and personal interests revolve around building efficient systems. Prior to founding VeriLedger, Megan was an early member of a cryptocurrency agency brokerage project out of ConsenSys. Before that, she consulted with a venture capital firm focused on making investments in the blockchain ecosystem as well as worked at an AmLaw 100 firm in financial operations. She recognized the need for better financial transparency and portfolio management tools, especially for companies with a diverse holding of cryptocurrencies. Before Megan became involved with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies, she was an early member of a team that worked to increase access to identification documents to the homeless and disadvantaged in New York City. This project was then scaled up and integrated in a social services program offered through the Bloomberg administration. She helped run a sustainable development project in eastern Uganda which built a computer school and Internet cafe to support a local orphanage. Megan applies her financial operations background, startup experience, and passion for efficient systems to help businesses to be the masters of their own financial data with VeriLedger.
