Meg’s work has spanned the clean tech and startup worlds, as well as federal and state-level public policy focused on climate change and air quality issues, for the past two decades, principally in the Sacramento region and including networks and connections across the state. As Director of Business Development at University of California, Davis, she supported startups that were spinning out of university research labs, and then moved to run a nonprofit focused on supporting tech startups across the Capital Region, which featured a clean tech-focused program.
Immediately prior to LACI, she spent seven years leading the Clean Economy portfolio of regional projects at Valley Vision, a civic leadership nonprofit, and in 2020 she served as the organization’s Interim CEO, and advised the incoming CEO, an internal candidate and colleague. Meg has served in volunteer leadership roles including the Mayors’ Climate Commission and Mayor’s Tech Council, as Chairs of both the Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative (CRC) and the Alliance of Regional Collaborative for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA), as well as on the Boards of Capital Public Radio and Comstock’s Magazine, among others. Prior to moving to California in 2001, Meg’s private sector experience was in the telecommunications industry and multinational banking, in Toronto, New York, and London. Her MBA is from University of San Francisco and her BA in English is from Cornell University. In spare time, Meg enjoys sailing, hiking, and running.
