Megan Montgomery

Megan was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt and friend to all. Kind and compassionate, animal advocate, devoted volunteer at Greater Birmingham Humane Society, she earned her Master's Degree from UAB and was employed as a writer for UAB's school of nursing. She was confident, tenacious and goal oriented. Her friends described her as "a light when she entered a room, with such a big heart, non-judgmental and welcoming to all." That light was extinguished on December 1, 2019, when she was murdered by her estranged husband.
Megan felt called to share her experience to help other women avoid the horror that is domestic violence.
Megan's mother, stepdad and sister created the Megan Montgomery Foundation to prevent domestic violence, Inc. because it is what Megan wanted to do.

“I want to show them the warning signs; why it is so hard to get out. To help them with the legal system, to help them leave sooner. I’m embarking on my new calling to help other girls and other victims.”
Megan Montgomery
