More About Meghan (in her own words)...
I was born and raised in Peoria, IL and moved to Wisconsin in 2010 when my husband, Tony, secured a position at UWO in Student Recreation. We currently live in Oshkosh with our son John and daughter Ruby. During my graduate studies, I discovered my passion for teaching. I am so happy to be teaching at UWO and to be able to share my enthusiasm and knowledge with my students. My interests include hanging with my awesome family, scrapbooking (when I have time!), rooting for my favorite teams (Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, and Iowa Hawkeyes), reading, and trying to make my time on this Earth as fulfilling as possible.
