Meet Meg McCollister

In December 2021, President Biden appointed Meg McCollister to the role of regional administrator for EPA Region 7. Meg oversees a staff of more than 650 public servants who provide environmental protections throughout Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and nine tribal nations. Working with local, state, and federal leaders, Meg advances environmental justice and climate initiatives to ensure clean air, water, and land across all Heartland communities.

Prior to joining EPA, Meg spent nearly two decades as an advisor, communicator, and strategic thinker serving nonprofits, candidates for public office, and public policy campaigns. Born in Kansas and raised in both Kansas and Missouri, she received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas before attending the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctorate with an emphasis in urban, land use and environmental law.

Meg resides in Kansas City with her husband, three children, and rescued greyhound. She enjoys running, hiking, and exploring the outdoors.

Stepping Stones KC

Megan’s daughter has started at-home piano lessons through Stepping Stones. Stepping Stones KC offers music therapy services and enrichment groups for children from birth through 18, with or without a clinical diagnosis.
