Meg’s first introduction to the wonders and joys of an educational park setting came through her father, who served as Chief Ranger in Delaware State Park in Delaware, Ohio. Following on the heels of a youth spent hiking the trails at Mesa Verde, wandering through unmapped historic ruins and exploring local nature centers, Meg went on to earn a BA in history and an MAIS in folklore at George Mason University. She has developed and run programs on American Indian history and culture, written about occupational folklore and storyteller repertoire, and explores historic costuming in her off time. She is currently serving as the Development and Administrative Coordinator for the Accokeek Foundation. When she isn’t managing the contact database or writing grant proposals, she can be found taking her lunch break outside, with the turkeys.
