Megan Webber was introduced to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in September of 2009 when her second son, Benjamin, then age 5, was diagnosed with Coats’ Disease. His journey would ultimately sparke the Know The Glow campaign, which Megan is Co-Founder. She is also on the Advisory Board of The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Co-Chair of BrightEyes, a volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the doctors and patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Megan graduated in 1990 from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in Psychology and second concentration in Business. Upon graduation she moved to Chicago where she initially worked at the Intercontinental Hotel and later The Drake Hotel for the General Manager and Public Relations department. Megan initially coordinated events and activities across all departments of the hotel and expanded her role into functioning as a liaison between the Office of the General Manager, Public Relations, Rooms Division, and Special Events. From there, she was recruited to run the Front Office, Reservations and Rooms Division for Chicago Athletic Association where she learned all areas of hotel operation. From 1994-1996, Megan worked an Office Manager for The Hefner Agency, an insurance company specializing in Estate Planning. In 1996, she joined Whittman-Hart, an information Technology Consulting Firm, working initially as the executive assistant to the CEO. While developing her career in the company, she was asked to assist with the lead team opening offices around the country and internationally for Whittman-Hart.
After moving with her husband to Los Angeles in 2000, Megan continued her career with Whittman-Hart until July of that year when she retired to start her family. Raising three children provided her the chance to pursue volunteer opportunities at school and in the community. Chairing membership for Pacific Palisades Junior Womens Club and later becoming Vice President, President, and Past President of the PPJWC, she led the effort raising $100,000 annually, which was then distributed to local community projects in Pacific Palisades.
