Megha has more than 12 years of experience working in strategy and innovation. She started her career working for the federal government, dabbled in research and analytics at the Brookings Institution, and spent close to a decade working on unique, challenging, and high-visibility consulting engagements at Monitor Deloitte, where she focused on how large-scale disruptive trends impact organizations, communities, and people. She was also a fellow at the World Economic Forum, where she launched a major research initiative and publication at the 50th WEF Annual Meeting in Davos in 2020.
A published author, she has penned thought leadership pieces on topics such as rural broadband, the future of mobility, and megatrends.
Megha says she was drawn to JFF because of the way the organization has navigated change, evolved, and transformed to create catalytic impact for workers and learners. “I love that JFF isn’t constrained by ‘what is’ and rather chooses to be bold and act confidently with visions of ‘what could be,’” she says.
Megha holds an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, a master’s in public policy from Duke University, and bachelor’s degrees in economics and psychology from the University of Maryland.
She lives in Charlestown, Massachusetts, with her husband, Steve, and their playful, naughty Bernedoodle, Khiree.
