Meghan Holohan

Meghan Holohan lives in Pittsburgh close to two universities where she pesters doctors and scientists about their research. Even her physician friends tire of telling her about teratomas and bug infestations in open wounds. Meghan plays dodgeball on a competitive intramural team and impresses friends with her ability to diagram sentences, a skill scared into her by Catholic school teachers. She spends a great deal of time spoiling her pets.
