About the Guest
Meet Megan, also known as The Savage Meglet. Megan is a force to be reckoned with, known for her grit, determination, resilience, and perseverance. As a lifelong athlete playing two Division 1 sports, field hockey and track, Megan had her sights set on her next athletic pursuit - a calm 80mph sled ride experiencing 5Gs of force going head first with her chin off the ice, representing Team USA and the Army World Class Athlete Program for over a decade.
However, Megan's dreams were put on hold when she was diagnosed with life-threatening blood clots and was told she'd never be an athlete again. But instead of giving up, Megan chose to tell a different story. She battled back to become a multiple World Championship team member, a 2x Track Record Holder, and ranked as high as 8th in the world. She was also the fastest pusher in the United States and #1 in the United States for many years.
Now, Megan is pursuing sport psychology, where she helps athletes harness their inner power by changing the story they tell themselves and harnessing the power of consistency and habits. Megan is a true inspiration to all who know her, and her story serves as a reminder that anything is possible with hard work, self belief and determination.
