Meg is from Chicago, Illinois, and is about to complete an MS in Environmental Science with a concentration in Sustainability from the University of Dayton in Ohio. Previously, Meg graduated from UD with a BS in Environmental Biology and a minor in Sustainability. During the past two years, Meg worked part-time as a Sustainability Specialist for the City of Dayton, Ohio where she led the initiative to procure energy for all Dayton residents from 100% renewable resources. In addition, she was the Co-Author of Dayton's first sustainability plan and is currently aiding in a community-driven project to get 13MW of solar on an EPA superfund site in Dayton. Her graduate assistantship for the Sustainability Institute at UD focused on conducting a city-wide resilience assessment. In her free time, she trains service dogs for disabled children, paddleboards and hikes with her dog. This summer, Meg is working with the Oyster River Cooperative School District (ORSCD) to write the sustainability management plan for the district. She is most excited to learn about how the school district has prioritized sustainability both in practice and education and to work with her mentor.
