She has a twin sister named Rachael and of this relationship, Megan says "We sound exactly alike, but our personalities couldn’t be more different. Rach was the social queen. I was the tomboy. I had a lot of energy, to put it mildly. We used to go from playing street hockey in full gear, to playing basketball, then break for lunch, then play some soccer, then back into the street hockey gear."
