I'm a media nerd. I love consuming it almost as much as I love creating it. For the past two years I've been exploring the landscape of new media from the basement of the Missouri School of Journalism as an emerging media convergence student. Following my graduation in May, I joined the reporting team at DailyMail.com in New York City for four months. After a three-month stint at the Daily Mail newspaper in London I'm back in the city reporting for the US health desk.
I'm definitely a food freak. I love making it and I love eating it. Check out my personal blog, kookie, to see a little more about "Chef Meegs."
I had the privilege of spending five months in Europe in Spring 2016. My home base was Brussels, BE, where I interned four days a week and took classes at the local university. I spent the weekends walking holes in my shoes in some of the most incredible cities in the world. The experience was all too quick but I can't wait to get back over the pond.
My child is a 17 year old barn cat from North Carolina. I have yet to meet an animal that I didn't immediately fall in love with. This fall I delved into the science of the human-animal bond as part of my psychology degree while volunteering at a local bird rescue center.
