About Megan Wildhood

I'm a neurodiverse writer, scuba diver, saxophone player (marching band geek, here!), gardener, cyclist, fitness enthusiast and committed follower of Jesus. I'm also a business owner (meganwildhood.com/gcc) and editor and coach. I love purple, dancing of all kinds, including really badly in my house, snuggling cats and studying theology, real estate investing, quantum physics, relationships/psychology, economics, and law, to name a few. I want to know everything about everything - my mom jokes that I never grew out of asking why.
