Hey There! I’m Megan.
I’m glad you’re here. I’m Megan Mowery—journalism and political science student at Drake University, recent ASME Intern at Ad Age, former editor in chief of Drake Magazine, former editorial apprentice at the Better Homes & Gardens Crafts Group. Well, those are the formal titles, anyway.
I’m also a native Wisconsinite, a lover of reading and the outdoors, a passionate consumer of cheese, and an avid wine drinker. If I had all the free time in the world, I’d spend it curled up in a coffeeshop reading a book and listening to folk or jazz. I spent last summer living and interning in NYC, and I absolutely fell in love with the city and everything it has to offer. Fast forward to graduation: I’m looking forward to getting back.
My overarching passion is media and all its forms. A magazine nerd at heart, over the years I’ve also grown appreciation for web content, social media, podcasting, and all the ways they can be used together to cultivate a brand’s presence and impact. I’ve had the opportunity to help manage our brand’s social media as well as create digital content for the BHG Crafts Group, and it awoke in me a passion I didn’t know I had.
Looking forward, I’m making the most of my last year at Drake. I’m taking a much-needed break from Drake Magazine, but jumping head first into journalism capstone as Articles Editor of Urban Plains. And very soon I’ll be looking for that coveted first post-grad job. So hire me, please?
