Next month's speaker: Megan Michelson “Birds and Bees, oh help me, please!”
As a middle school teacher in 2009, Megan adored her students, but was also alarmed by how much the sexualized culture was influencing them. Megan first heard Mary Flo speak at a parenting program hosted by her school. She realized the powerful insights of Mary Flo's strategies and recognized what a difference it could have made for her students if their parents had conversations with them in their earlier years. For her, this exposure to Mary Flo's approach was a game changer as to the importance, timing, and content of conversations about sex.
Several years later, after becoming a parent herself, Megan's convictions about this approach deepened, ultimately leading her to train under Mary Flo. In 2015 Megan began presenting the program to a new generation of parents.
Megan was born in Dallas and received her degree in Communications from Baylor University. She has been married to her husband Blake for ten years and they have three young children.
Childcare begins at 9:30am.
