Megan McDermott - Career Coach

"When I started working with Megan I was in a bit of a career slump. I felt disenfranchised with the industry, unmotivated and generally mopey. Megan worked with me through the Accelerated system to distill my essence, clarify my type and develop a specific brand. What a turning point! Having a crystal clear sense of what I bring to the table has motivated me to put in the work, empowered me to go after what I want, and has gotten me great results in terms of callbacks and bookings. I also had the most successful headshot session of my career. Both the photographer and stylist commented on how awesome my preparation was. If you feel like your acting is good but are wondering why you aren't getting where you want to be, I can't recommend working with Megan enough. She is kind, super knowledgable and will push you to get the results you want. Being talented in this business isn't enough. You have to be specific about what you bring and what you want and when you know that you can be absolutely fearless in going after it." -Annie Grier


Originally from Trenton, New Jersey, I began singing opera at the age of 12 and majored in vocal performance in college, but soon realized that acting in the works of great playwrights like Tennessee Williams, Oscar Wilde, and Shakespeare is where my true passion and talent come alive! After working regionally for a few years, I moved to NYC for Graduate Acting Conservatory and to continue performing in the theatre as well as voiceovers!

I have a great devotion to regional theatre, especially language based plays and am excited about expanding into musicals again! I’m very grateful that I’ve been lucky enough to play many of my passion parts: Babe in Crimes of the Heart, Cecily in The Importance of Being Earnest, Laura in The Glass Menagerie, Catherine in In the Next Room/The Vibrator Play, Mandy in Time Stands Still Natasha in The Three Sisters (twice actually!), and Olympia in Big Love, and Viola in Twelfth Night. I'm looking forward to playing many more!  

When not under the bright lights, you will find me enjoying my other loves: taking long walks all over the city while listening to great music, baking delicious desserts, sharing wine and having deep chats with friends, and perfecting my Italian – I will be fluent this year, finally!
