Formally trained, Meghan earned her Bachelor's of Arts in Film, Television, and Media Studies from California State University, Los Angeles, as well as her Master's of Fine Arts in Art for Commerce Photography at The Academy of Art University, San Francisco.

Her film and television studies were focused in character study, direction, mise-en-scene, large-scale production, and cinematography.  Meghan's Master's of Fine Arts photography studies were focused in fashion photography utilizing studio and location lighting techniques, commercial retouching techniques, and directing subjects for commercial results.

Prior to her work in Los Angeles, Meghan was working on the global photography operations team at Airbnb, as a Photo Editor for Airbnb Plus. Meghan worked with Airbnb’s global photographer community to ensure Airbnb Plus's listing photography submissions where aligned with brand standards, and offered technical guidance to photographers during the submission process.

Also, while at Airbnb, Meghan had the unique opportunity to propose and conduct a sustainability research project, defining what it means to have an eco friendly listing. Through Meghan's research, she designed a set of sustainable criteria to filter homes for guest search on the platform. This research led her to Taos, NM where she met and interviewed sustainable hosts, and experienced some of the most uniquely sustainable homes on Earth. Meghan's project culminated in presenting her findings to Airbnb's Sustainability Advisory Board member Heather Zichal, the former Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change, who served in the Barack Obama administration starting in 2009. Meghan's extensive sustainability research was also utilized by members of Airbnb's Public Policy team as well as the Product Content Strategist of the Categorization team resulting in new sustainable home categories added to the drop down filters in guest search for home type.

Working for Airbnb was an incredibly rewarding experience for Meghan, but she missed creating and working with people from behind the camera.

Meghan is currently living in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, and she is loving working with clients to help them achieve their dreams. Meghan still seeks to support sustainable initiatives.
