Morgan grew up in Portland, Oregon before Portlandia made it cool. After she graduated high school she traded the Pacific Northwest for New York City, and graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Science in Media, Culture and Communications with a minor in Film & Television Production. After graduation Morgan worked in MTV Network’s Connected Content Group as a Digital Producer for Logo TV. Her time at Viacom came to an end, however, when she traded snowy winters for beach days in February and began at USC’s Gould School of Law. Morgan’s passion for entertainment led her to serve as the President for the Entertainment Law Society, and now as the Editor-In-Cheif of Spotlight, a role which has quickly become her favorite part of her law school experience. When Morgan isn’t studying, you can find her near the ocean, on an airplane, or trying to find the world’s best buffalo chicken wing.
