Meghann is the newest member of the Skaneateles Library Board of Trustees, joining in April 2021.
A graduate of neighboring Westhill High School, Meghann earned an undergraduate and graduate degree from the University of Notre Dame. After serving as a middle school teacher through Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education program, Meghann continued teaching in the inner-city of Chicago before transitioning to the nonprofit sector. She eventually became Chief Education Officer for Chicago’s Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund, where she remains a Board member. Upon moving to Skaneateles, Meghann was appointed Chief Development Officer for the United Way of Central New York and directs the organization’s fundraising strategy.
Meghann, Tom, and their children, Connor (7) and Molly (5), spend their free time enjoying the area’s diverse hiking trails, biking paths and lakes as well as the slopes of the Skaneateles Ski Hill. They visit the library several times each week.
A former world champion Irish dancer and collegiate sailor, Meghann now prefers to spend her time hiking, skiing, paddle boarding, gardening, cooking and reading. Her ideal weekend would include a stop at the Patisserie for a loaf of stretch bread, coffee at the Bakery, a hike or bike ride on a local trail and a pint at the Skaneateles Brewery capped off with a backyard bonfire with her family or a date night at Gilda’s.
