She graduated Cum Laude from the University of Alabama in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Human Sciences. After graduation, Megan moved to Washington, D.C. where she worked for the Children’s Defense Fund, a child advocacy organization, and Symphonic Strategies, a consulting firm.

She is currently the Director of Operations and Project Management for Symphonic Strategies, the Washington, D.C. based consulting firm. Megan is married to Drayton Arendall, who is also a Mobile native. The couple have two children, Drayton, Jr. (age 4) and Frances (age 2).

Megan has also had the honor of serving on the Mitchell Cancer Institute’s Celebrate Hope Committee and was a member of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Leadership Class of 2015. This is Megan’s second year to help chair the Vintage Affair with Sarah Marshall. This year it means even more to her as her dad was diagnosed with kidney cancer in April of 2021. Along with the help of the committee, ACS staff, numerous volunteers, and sponsors, Megan and Sarah Marshall are excited that we will be able to celebrate with everyone in person as we raise awareness and funds for such a worthy cause.
