Team Member Spotlight: Megan Logsdon
Last Updated on August 21, 2020
They say not all superheroes wear capes. That statement is 100% true when it comes to our developer and #USDPeep Megan Logsdon. Although, who’s to say? We wouldn’t be surprised if this Marvel lover owned a cape or two…
What’s your role at USDP?
I’m a web developer, which basically means that I take the beautiful designs our design team creates and turn them into real, functioning websites.
What’s your background?
I actually found USDP at a career fair while I was attending Northern Kentucky University studying Media Informatics, Computer Science, and Marketing. I was able to land an internship at USDP my senior year of college and was hired on full time once I graduated. So most of my background, at least career-wise, is actually right here at USDP!
Why did you want to work with USDP?
The people and culture are obviously a huge reason. Everyone was so inviting and excited for me to be there that it instantly felt like a place I’d enjoy going each week. USDP also encourages learning and exploration of new technologies, something I was looking for especially as a recent graduate.
What are your interests/activities outside of work?
When the weather’s nice I love playing tennis with my siblings and going on hikes. I’m also a huge nerd so I love jigsaw puzzles and anything Marvel.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a zookeeper or zoologist! I’ve always had a love for animals and I still frequently visit the Cincinnati Zoo.
What are you known for at work? What’s your MO?
I like to think I get things done quickly and efficiently, so people tend to look to me when there’s a tight budget or deadline. I have this weird tick where I just can’t procrastinate. If there’s something that I need to do, I have to do it immediately or it’s all I think about. It’s a blessing and a curse.
What is something you believe that almost nobody agrees with you on?
Something at least most developers disagree with me about is that I HATE working on my computer in the dark. Most devs, and all the guys on my team, would rather be in the darkest room possible with the only light coming from their computer screen. I love natural light and need things to be light and bright to keep my mood and energy level up (even to the point of not using dark mode on my laptop, *gasp!*)
