Staff, board, committees, interns: people who make the Arts Council happen.

Meghan is passionate about developing creative placemaking projects and promoting the advancement of artists and arts and cultural organizations in an effort to create a thriving, active community that is accessible to everyone.
She grew up in an environment that valued creativity and found her second home in the theatre and music community.

Favorite art forms: anything that has music involved is tops on her list
