Meghan grew up in Asheboro, NC (home of the NC Zoo). Her interest in politics began in the 5th Grade when she won an election for school Treasurer using the slogan “Awesome Baby” after her family met Dick Vitale the summer before in Sarasota, FL. She remembers growing up listening to her Grammy talk passionately about politics and science. Meghan listened but found her heart led her to work with children. She went on to attend Appalachian State University, graduating at the top of her class with an Elementary Education degree. 

Graduating during the recession in 2010 proved finding a job difficult but Meghan was hired as a 3rd Grade teacher in Knightdale, NC where she remained for a decade. Her time as a teacher taught her many lessons of perseverance, communication, outreach, and collaboration that will stay with her forever but her heart began to pull her in a different direction. 

Meghan is excited for her new role at J.W. Joyner Government Affairs as VP of Everything. She will handle scheduling, billing, and social media while also being a full-time Mom to her daughter with Jason, Emerson Kate.

In her free time Meghan enjoys cooking, gardening, creating, and spending time outside with her husband Jason, daughter “EK”, and dog Paisley.
