Megan Sladek is a native of Oviedo who brings practical knowledge to the board as an attorney and real estate broker. Megan has worked in the Real Estate Investments Office at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology, at a construction management firm in New England, and now as owner of her own real estate company. Her experience in the real estate industry helps her bridge the gap between the aspirational goal of historic preservation and the realities of economics, engineering, and current codes.
Megan holds degrees in Anthropology and English from the University of Notre Dame and a degree in law from the University of Florida, but it is her children who bring the most inspiration to her work with TOPP. Mother of a 2nd grader and a 5th grader, her goal is to make history bite-sized and appealing even to Oviedo’s youngest residents. Megan served as Editor of the Oviedo Voice newspaper, researched for the Journal for Law and Public Policy (which covers Florida issues), and worked as a team member for the Working Waterfronts legislative initiative at University of Florida’s Center for Governmental Responsibility. She has been married to Paul Sladek for thirteen years and lives in a converted church built in 1880.
