She previously worked for organizations including The Boston Foundation, Physicians for Human Rights, Meredith College, and United Way of the Greater Triangle. Throughout her career, Meg has used strategic messaging approaches to influence community change and philanthropic growth.

She successfully manages collaborative projects, coordinates overall public relations efforts, and serves as a member of organizational leadership.

Meg received her Bachelor’s degree from Westfield State University and her Master’s degree from Suffolk University.
