Hi, my name is Meghan. I'm a student journalist at St. Bonaventure University, double majoring in journalism and marketing. I'm from Buffalo, New York, and I love news reporting, the Buffalo Bills and music. 

 

I'm an aspiring journalist and digital media professional. I'm curious, courageous, outgoing and dedicated. I've written stories on diverse topics — from food insecurity, to religious scandal, to COVID-19 updates, to university news.

As a Carnegie-Knight News21 Investigative Reporting Fellow, I served as the lead writer on a team focused on a story about how COVID-19 impacted food insecurity across the United States. Above, I am pictured field reporting in St. Louis, Missouri, interviewing Cathy "MamaCat" Daniels about her experiences feeding the city's homeless residents during the pandemic.  

As a reporter for TAPinto Greater Olean, I cover hyperlocal news in Cattaraugus County, New York. I have written long-form and short-form stories for the outlet, and have covered topics like COVID-19, politics and university relations at St. Bonaventure. Above, I am pictured interviewing New York State Senator George Borrello ahead of the 2020 elections. The interview was broadcast on YouTube and Facebook Live.

As a Digital Content Marketing intern at SiriusXM, I worked virtually on blogs, social media copy, YouTube analytics, clip selection and more. I was later invited back to do contract work with the team, and in my time as a contractor, I earned the team thousands of dollars by hand monetizing its brand YouTube page, taking copyright laws and restrictions into account.
