Megan Avalos ’09

Megan cites the guidance she received from Scripps professor Mary MacNaughton as well as the contacts she gained through Scripps as integral factors in helping her succeed on her chosen professional pathway.



Inspired by the interdisciplinary nature of a Scripps education, Megan graduated with a dual degree in Art History and Legal Studies. During her undergraduate career she participated in internships at the Williamson Gallery, the Claremont Museum of Art and the Huntington Library, where she curated an exhibition entitled, Impressions of the Artist: Nineteenth-Century American Etching. After graduating, Megan undertook an internship at Christie’s auction house in the Estates, Appraisals and Valuations Department. She then worked as a paralegal with a focus on trusts and litigation in order to gain balanced professional experience toward the study of law as it relates to property and the art market. Megan is currently pursuing an MA in Art Business at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London.
