Meghan Johnson is an intern at Newtown Sport Performance Psychology. She also works as the head athletic trainer for the Agnes Irwin School in Bryn Mawr, Pa., and is working toward a Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling from Eastern University. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training with a minor in Psychology from Eastern.
Meghan pursued a degree in counseling after seeing a need within the athletic community that she serves. Marrying the fields of sports medicine and counseling to better provide care to her patients and student athletes is one of her main interests.
Meghan’s passion for sports medicine and mental health in athletics began in her own career as a competitive athlete. Meghan played softball collegiately at Eastern University, where she was a pitcher before transitioning to the outfield. She served as a captain for Eastern in her 5th and 6th seasons at the university. Meghan was faced with a medical hardship as well as eligibility with the Covid-19 pandemic, allowing her the opportunity to play softball for the Eagles while obtaining her Master’s degree. Meghan also began her coaching career in 2021 with the 14u PA Cheetahs.
