Megan Lum


Megan Lum is enrolled in the Executive MBA program at the University of Washington Foster School of Business and is expected to graduate in 2010. Halfway through the program and as a result of the economic downturn, Lum lost her job as a senior environmental manager at Weyerhaeuser Company—not to mention the funding for her education. But she found another job at Pacific Gas & Electric Company in San Francisco, where she's been since January 2010. Lum has an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from the University of Windsor in Canada.
