Megan Kindelan is the assistant director for communications at the U.S. Census Bureau. Megan started at the Census Bureau in 2004 in the Public Information Office and was an instrumental member of the strategic communications team during the 2010 Census.

After nearly a decade at the Census Bureau, Megan was named communications director for the Administrative Conference of the United States and then served as the director of Public Affairs at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 2017, she was the sole recipient of the Secretary’s Distinguished Customer Service Award in recognition of her success at the Department of Labor as the Press Lock-up Administrator. Not wanting to miss the opportunity to be part of another decennial census, Megan returned to her roots at the Census Bureau in 2019 as a senior advisor to the Associate Director for Field Operations. Most recently, she was the acting deputy director of the National Processing Center.

Megan is a professorial lecturer at GSPM, where she’s been teaching courses since 2012 for students obtaining their master’s degrees in both Strategic Public Relations and Political Management. She was honored as the Graduate School of Political Management’s Adjunct Professor of the Year in 2018.

After graduating summa cum laude from the University of Florida’s Honors Program with a bachelor’s degree in public relations and a minor in political science, Megan earned her master’s degree in communications with a concentration in public and media relations from Johns Hopkins University.
