Today on the podcast I am joined by Megan Skaggs a recently graduated student-athlete at the University of Florida,  where she competed for the Gators.

A former US National Gymnastics Team member, Megan represented the US internationally including helping team US win Gold at the 2015 Pan American Games.

Most recently Megan won the 2022 Athlete Advocate of the Year at INFLCR NIL Summit.

As well as having an outstanding career and 5 years of studying and competing at College, Megan has done some amazing things inside the gymnastics community with charity efforts through her Tiny Bow Project, which promoted several great causes. 

We discuss:
