A graduate of University of Oregon with BS in Rhetoric and Communications, Meaghan's first career was in Human Resources.
After children, she spent 9 years actively involved in their school helping run the art docent program, as well as working as a teacher's assistant in both first and second grades. It was there she began to hear the "calling" to the classroom and a new career. For the past year, Meaghan has been our "go to" visiting teacher, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her join us in the Kindergarten room.
Meaghan lives in Sonoma Valley with her husband Doug and two children Emily and Ryan, both students at Sonoma Valley High School. She enjoys reading, gardening, hanging out with her kids and hiking with her dog Kenzie. She also loves spending time in the summer with her family on the lake in McCall, Idaho.
