Megan Dempsey

Ms. Dempsey is a Huntsville native. She grew up attending the Huntsville City Schools' Magnet Program. She moved to Denver, Colorado to complete her Bachelor's Degree and lived here for 10 years. She moved back in 2018 and is so glad that she did!

Ms. Dempsey enjoys living a healthy lifestyle. She enjoys going to the gym to lift weights and run; and cooking at home and eating clean. During her spare time, she spends time with her family, and enjoys hiking, camping, swimming, kayaking, dancing, and reading. Finally, she strives to embody positive living principles. Everyday is a new day and an opportunity to move forward and reach new heights of what is possible.

She believes, "What lies before us and what lies behind us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be." Ralph Waldo Emerson
