She earned her master’s degree at the University of Alabama in sports management and spent the past year working as a marketing assistant.

“Megan played at the highest collegiate level and excelled so I feel confident her strong work ethic and knowledge of college basketball will help our Georgia State program grow,” Baldwin-Tener said. “She is a native of this area and wanted to be an integral part of our plans for success. With her energy, knowledge and skills, I think this is a perfect fit for her and for Georgia State.”
