About Megan Lee

Not your stereo-typed techie, Megan came to business marketing circuitously from a multi-skilled background as a professional writer, editor, Internet copyright specialist, and educator.

While living and working in Hong Kong in the 1980’s, she may have been one of the very first Americans to pioneer word processing on a Brother laptop (remember WordStar?), and hasn’t stopped using technology since.

After completing a one-year course with Kotton Grammer and Greg Morrison, the highest-paid SEO consultants in the U.S. in 2016, and a certification program in social media marketing with Tai Lopez, Entrepreneur magazine’s No. 1 social media strategist of 2017, Megan celebrated her first year as an entrepreneur successfully ranking business websites on Page 1 for Internet and mobile searches, bringing organic traffic, visibility and new revenue to local businesses in Monterey Bay and in the Los Angeles metro area.

Megan is getting to know our active business community as a member of the Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and the Professional Women’s Network of the Monterey Peninsula. She continues to support the Monterey Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, and Community Human Services’ Safe Place and Safe Passage youth programs. Megan lives in an historic log home in Carmel Valley Village with her husband and their overly-friendly Dalmatian, Jerry.
