Meg catalyzes connection and generates conditions for team flow, awareness, and curiosity. She’s a great communicator, which means she’s an even better listener. Meg inspires the confidence, ease, and trust necessary for authentic connection. Meg’s recent work with 3 Square Blocks includes serving as Project Manager for the WSDOT Active Transportation Plan and Pierce Transit’s Destination 2040 Long Range Plan Update.

Meg works with colleagues and partners to uncover new possibilities and delights in asking questions that challenge assumptions. She offers insight gained across many disciplines: public engagement and facilitation, curating community conversations, natural resource and urban planning, salmon habitat recovery, renewable energy policy, small business coaching, and major event production.

Meg was a Fulbright scholar in Berlin and was part of a documentary film crew that gathered stories from women factory workers in Indonesia. In 2015, she was founding producer and lead curator of TEDxOlympia. She is most proud of her work sharing yoga and mindfulness practices with women offenders at the Washington Corrections Center for Women and establishing a new yoga program at the Mission Creek Corrections Center for Women. Meg earned an M.B.A. from Bainbridge Graduate Institute and holds a B.A. in environmental design and architecture from University of Colorado – Boulder.

I believe we all need to pause and listen more. There’s genius in the white space.
