joined the Board of Trustees in January. She has lived in the Boston area her entire life – minus a brief stint in Upstate New York for college, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Cazenovia College.

Today she works leading University Relations for Biogen. Meghan helps students and early career talent realize the breadth of potential careers within the biotech industry, and builds a talent bench filled with different backgrounds and perspectives. In her current role, she’s a relationship manager, a marketer, a talent liaison, a confidante, a connector, and a tactical executor.

In her free time, Meghan loves spending time outdoors with her best pal and four-legged sidekick, Thor. You’ll also find her at a weekly spin class, exploring Boston, and during football season, cheering on the Patriots.

Grateful to live in a remarkable city filled with history and innovators, Meghan looks forward to supporting Boston By Foot as it continues its work promoting awareness and appreciation of Boston's rich history and architectural heritage.
