Meghan has also taught and coached women from the most prestigious and diverse academic institutions, including SUNY and CUNY colleges and universities, Columbia University, Barnard College, New York University, Princeton College, Smith College, College of New Jersey, and many more. She has also developed and taught coursework for NYC Department of Education students. 

She has experience working as a communications best practices / public speaking coach with executive level/C-suite employees; recent clients include members of Commercial Real Estate Women of New York (CREW NY) and United Nations Headquarters. 

Prior to serving on staff, Meghan interned for BALI Founder/Executive Director, Liz Abzug, and remained an active member of the BALI Alumnae Association. Meghan earned a BA in Theatre and Performance from the Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Purchase College.

 The young women at BALI provide her the inspiration needed to serve her community as an activist for the deaf community, artist, and a lifetime learner. It is with pride that she carries on the vision of Bella Abzug and “inspire[s] women and girls to lead the future.”
