Meg , a South Carolina native, graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, attended Officer Candidate School, and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the Marine Corps in August 2003. Following extensive training in Quantico, VA and Twentynine Palms, CA, she joined Marine Air Support Squadron 3 at Camp Pendleton, CA and immediately deployed to Iraq as a Tactical Air Director/Helicopter Director in the Direct Air Support Center.
After returning from that deployment in 2004, Meg was promoted to First Lieutenant and worked as a Platoon Commander and Weapons & Tactics Training Program Officer before deploying to Iraq again in 2006 as the Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of an Air Support Element.
Meg spent her last few months on active duty as the Squadron Operations Officer, before being honorably discharged in 2007. Shortly thereafter, Meg was promoted to Captain while serving in the reserves. She began her civilian career in account management and inside sales with a military recruiting and placement firm. Meg has also worked in government contracting roles working on aviation projects, and most recently, she worked with a transition services organization managing the company’s relationship with employer-clients in various industries and aiding transitioning service members entering the workforce.
In her spare time, Meg enjoys outdoor activities like hiking and camping, and is also an avid runner and rower. She currently lives in the Richmond, VA area with her husband Will and their labradoodle, Orlando.
