She supports the President's Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (PITF), a cabinet-level entity that coordinates U.S. government-wide effords to combat trafficking in persons. In addition, Tegan coordinates efforts of the U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking, comprised of survivors of human trafficking and charged with making recommendations to the PITF on federal anti-trafficking policies.

Prior to her work at the Department of State, Tegan worked at the United States Agency for International Development alongside the Counter Trafficking in Persons team. She focused on coordinating federal efforts to address forced labor in the global seafood supply chain.

As a member of National Community Church (NCC), Tegan joined with several others to form NCC Against Slavery and Exploitation to focus on combating trafficking through prayer, public awareness and educational events, as well as partnering with local direct-care providers. For the last three years, Tegan has been leading a prayer ministry to intercede on behalf of those involved in modern-day slavery in Washington, D.C.
