Meg is passionate about designing and implementing high-quality early learning and health systems that provide equitable opportunities for all children. She began her career as an elementary educator with Teach for America and literacy specialist in Washington, D.C. As an educator, she saw the impact of childhood stress and trauma on her students and became deeply invested in the need for targeted supports that empower caregivers and build capacity in the first five years of life. Meg has expertise collaborating to support strategic learning and innovation at a variety of education, health, and positive youth development focused nonprofits. An Education Pioneers fellowship brought her to the Bay Area and most recently she was a consultant at a social impact firm partnering with nonprofits and foundations to strengthen effective learning practices. She is inspired by the integrated whole child approach of The Primary School and its long term goal to develop a game changing, replicable system of care.

Meg holds a Master’s in Public Health focused on Maternal and Child Health from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Arts in Teaching from American University. She earned a B.A. in History and a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Arizona.
