Hi, I’m Meagan! Welcome to my website. I’m so happy you’re here.
If you don’t know me, let me offer you a little bit of information about myself: I’m currently living in San Diego, California. Before I moved here, I was up in LA working at an educational nonprofit, doing a bit of everything, including writing, creating content for social media, and helping with marketing and development.
I moved to LA from Thailand, and I moved to Thailand from Colombia. In both places I wrote and taught English (mostly online to kids in China) while traveling. Ah, remote work! What an adventure.
I moved to Colombia from…San Diego! I spent two years here before working with youth and young adults at a refugee resettle agency. It’s a nice place, so I came back.
Before I was in San Diego (the first time), I was in Spain, teaching English and science at an elementary school. Before that, I studied International Relations and Peace and Justice Studies at Tufts University in Boston. I spent the first 18 years of my life growing up in the Chicago suburbs. I still root for Chicago sports teams and will defend deep dish pizza against its critics, even though I’m gluten and lactose intolerant. Not defend it as a healthy choice, but as a robust and indulgent choice. Or defend its right to be called pizza. I have a great sense of loyalty.
Since I don’t eat pizza and Chicago sports teams aren’t doing so hot, I spend most of my free time outside in nature or inside reading books or making my living space look pretty and feel good. I like being active; I hike, go on runs, and get to yoga weekly. I meditate and I practice gratitude. I cook a lot. Mostly because I enjoy it, but also because I have a lot of food sensitivities.
That’s pretty much it. My favorite color is blue. I love the ocean. I’m a dog person. I have been told that I have beautiful, competitive hands (if you need a hand model, here I am). I went to circus camp for a couple summers in my early teens; that’s why I know how to juggle. I can use semicolons.

All the best,
