She is passionate about securing equal rights for all people and strives to achieve transformational leadership in every project she takes on. These beliefs have continually positioned her at the forefront of social change.


Maegan served as Arianna Huffington’s Chief of Staff in the early days of The Huffington Post, launched Variety’s Wilshire and Washington podcast about Hollywood and politics, registered hundreds of thousands of young people as Communications Director of Rock the Vote, and was the Founding Curator of Upworthy. She began her career as a reporter for The Chicago Tribune and has written for many esteemed publications.

Maegan's most personal work is with birdbrain, a non-profit she founded with her mother, Dianna. The organization makes clothing, art therapy kits, and education materials for people impacted by sexual trauma. The flagship birdbrain community showroom opened in Palm Springs, CA in 2017. The first pop up community showroom was held in Manhattan's Hudson Yards in April 2019 and will continue to Los Angeles, Nashville, and more post-pandemic. 

Maegan is a graduate of UCLA and Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. Go Bruins! Grrrr Wildcats!


Maegan lives in Los Angeles with her cuuuute cats Cinna and Lee Alexander McQueen. If you can't find her, drive to the desert and turn right. She's hiding behind huge sunglasses reading a novel by a pool. 


PRO TIPS: Don't ever ask her about the impending robot takeover or you'll be trapped for hours. And be sure to bring a Fountain Diet Coke to the meeting to impress her.

Keep up with Maegan on her blog. It's right here and it's riveting.
