Megan Charney is a Northern California native, hailing from Napa Valley. She attended California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo and graduated in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in viticulture. After working for a few years in the wine industry, she changed career paths and became a behavioral therapist for children on the autism spectrum. Megan heard about Jodi House and started volunteering in 2021 before becoming a case management intern in January 2022. Megan always enjoyed being able to sit in on classes with members, which led her to applying for the Program Specialist position.
