Meaghan started her career in the intersection of Money and Magic. She spent five years in the children’s book publishing as an Editorial Intern at Simon & Schuster, a Literary Assistant at Vigliano Associates and as a freelance manuscript evaluator (she was the first to sign off on The Line by Teri Hall) where she had a first hand look at thepublishing process from manuscript to contracts to illustrations to book shelves.
From there,she spearheaded employee and patient satisfaction at NYU Langone Medical Center where she introduced the Emergency Department’s first internal newsletter that highlighted employee milestones and socialized success to increase employee moral in order to directly impact the patient experience. She also revolutionized a database that tracked patient and clinical information that allowed the department to capture over US $4M in additional revenue from previously unbilled items.
After moving to Beth Israel Medical Center Vascular Surgery division in 2011, she was suddenly plucked by a Fahrenheit 212 partner who happened upon her and her work and asked her to join the team. When she received the call, she spent a solid minute laughing.
Meaghan graduated cum laude from CUNY Hunter College with a B.A. in English (Creative Writing and Shakespeare) and Religious Studies. She is a not-so-closeted, self proclaimed Marvel Comics geek who has had a lengthy, heated written argument with a well-known comic book writer of an equally famous comic book character on Facebook. She’s had stints in car dealerships, cramped Madison Avenue gift shops and in a library where she was almost fired for reading too much. And she can make a mean macaroni and cheese.
