Megan Houck, Law Clerk

Megan Houck began working with Attorneys Ryan Schmalzle and Christin Georgelas as a Law Clerk in 2016. She took a three-year leave of absence in May 2018 when her husband, who works for the US State Department, was posted at the US Embassy in Bosnia. She retuned to Virginia in May 2021 and resumed her position as a Law Clerk with the firm.

Megan is currently attending law school at George Mason University, Antonin Scalia Law School as an evening student, while working full-time at SG Law, PLC. She will complete her studies and graduate in May 2025.

Megan’s husband was active-duty military and was deployed three times. He is currently working for the US State Department in the Foreign Service (Diplomatic Security). Her husband’s service in the military as well as the State Department has allowed Megan to gain a unique and personal perspective of the lifestyle of those who are serving, or have served the country.

During her three years living in Bosnia, Megan served on the School Board of an International School in Sarajevo, Bosnia.

Megan also served as a Guardian Ad Litem for two years in Juvenile Court in Cumberland County, North Carolina.

Megan lives in Loudoun County, Virginia with her husband and four children. Her hobbies include baking, reading, and visiting as many countries as she can.
