Meg grew up in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts collecting sea shells and found the beginnings of her career niche in water quality at UMass Amherst where she graduated with a BS degree in Environmental Science.

These days, you can find Meg at the helm of our Boston Whaler where she undertakes water quality testing in ponds, rivers and embayments throughout the Town of Barnstable.  Before coming to the Barnstable Clean Water Coalition, Meg worked at the Broadmoor and Oak Knoll Sanctuaries owned and operated by the Massachusetts Audubon Society.

Meg resides on the Upper Cape where she takes a walk every day on the beach not far from her home.
