When she's not playing golf, Meghan enjoys working in her garden and kitchen. Meghan and her husband, Marcus, love to go hiking with their rescue dogs, Remi, Rooster and Roxie.

Meghan loves to work with all area rescue groups to help them raise much-needed money. She emcees local trivia nights, helps judge the costume contest at Strut Your Mutt, walks the runway in costume herself with some help from her costumed dogs, and even spent 24 hours locked in a kennel with a sweet rescue pup named Senorita. Anything to help these hard-working organizations save more animals and reach their “no-kill” shelter goals!
