Meaghan wears many hats throughout the day: wife to husband of fifteen years, Jeremy, mom to two incredible children, Jacob and Aliza, legal assistant, foster parent, and surrogate. A Wichita native, she met her husband at K-State (Go State!) and they moved from coast (Los Angeles, CA) to coast (Manchester, NH and Groton, CT) before settling back down in Kansas. She is a big fan of her crock pots, has read more than a novel a day for the last five years, and crochets in her “spare” time.


  1. Hi, Meaghan,

    I didn’t realize you did this! Wanted to let folks know that Home Depot’s kids’ workshops haven’t resumed…yet! However, it may be possible to pick up the kits that we use for the classes, for free, at the customer service desk.
