Megan Toohey is the Director of Children & Families at the Harvard Kennedy School Government Performance Lab (GPL), where she leads a team supporting state and local governments across the country who are committed to reimagining the way they support children and families, redirecting resources towards prevention investments that help shrink punitive government responses such as child protection investigations and removals. The GPL’s core toolkit to help advance these reforms includes expertise in data-driven performance management, results-driven procurement and contracting processes, and strengthening service arrays and referral pathways. Megan has been with the GPL team since 2016 and is currently based in Chicago. Her previous experience focused on youth behavioral health services. Megan earned her Master of Social Work from Boston College and a BA in Psychology from the University of Notre Dame.
