Victim Researcher Profile
YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Megan Greeson received her PhD in Community Psychology from Michigan State University. She entered the movement to end violence against women as a medical sexual assault advocate and a community-based advocate for women with abusive partners. She conducts community-based research and program evaluation that focuses on understanding and improving how individuals, organizations, and communities respond to gender-based violence. She has worked with police, prosecutors, rape crisis centers, SANEs, SARTs, universities, and state coalitions. She works closely with community partners through all stages of projects so that her work is maximally useful and is grounded in the realities of the local context. Her most recent work focuses on interdisciplinary collaboration in responding to sexual assault and Sexual Assault Response Teams.
