Megan Pilkington | Emerge Pennsylvania

Class of 2016

Megan PilkingtonMegan Pilkington was drawn to the inaugural session of Emerge Pennsylvania as a result of her growing interest in politics and her desire to get more women elected.  She aspires to run for public office after the program, and wants to continue to spread the word about Emerge to women across Pennsylvania to inspire them to do the same.

She is a member of the Westmoreland County Democratic Committee and the Young Democrats of Westmoreland County, where she spends her time networking with passionate Democrats and working toward a common goal of turning her county blue again.

Megan holds a B.S. in Management Information Systems from the University of Pittsburgh, and is currently employed as a Data Analyst in the private sector.  She believes her compassion, sound judgement and inquisitive outlook on life will be a great foundation for future public office.

In her spare time, Megan enjoys watching hockey, reading, and keeping up to date with current events.  She frequently visits her two favorite places--Gettysburg, PA and Washington, DC--with her history buff husband, Jeff.
