About Meg

As the Director of Marketing & Communications for the Foundation, Meg manages the strategy behind all of our communications, media relations, and marketing to better communicate the impact and value of the Foundation to our community.

Meg came to the Foundation in 2012 with extensive experience in nonprofit marketing and development. She previously worked for organizations including The Boston Foundation, Physicians for Human Rights, Meredith College, and United Way of the Greater Triangle. She has created several strategic marketing and communications plans during her career, and has also managed PR, executed the re-design of several websites, and written scripts and articles for many audiences. She taught at the collegiate level, and started her career as a print journalist for a daily newspaper in Western Massachusetts. Meg received her Bachelor’s degree from Westfield State College and her Master’s degree from Suffolk University in Boston.

Meg is a proud transplant from New England, and moved to Knightdale from Boston in 2007. She lives there with her husband, teenage son, and dog. In her free time, she enjoys being outside on a long hike, vintage shopping, running, and making things.

Ways Meg gives back:

  1. Supporting local artists
