Megan Shepard is the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Coordinator at Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. Megan started in corrections in 2010 at Larned Correctional Mental Health Facility where she supervised the records and classification office. After 4 years she was promoted to Kansas Department of Corrections Central Office to work as Sentence Comp Administrator, working with attorneys, judges, sheriff offices and parole staff to process offenders sentencing.  Megan was recruited to the PREA department in Central Office as a PREA Advocate Specialist. After 2 years Megan transitioned into a position with Department of Children and Families as a Grant Specialist. Ultimately the work in corrections called her back to help advocate for incarcerated survivors and she started with KCSDV as PREA Coordinator in April 2019.
