Meighan is a wife and mother of two young children, and is passionate about helping those in her community. Her understanding of the importance and appreciation for public programs and supports was ingrained from a very young age when her youngest brother was diagnosed with Autism. This experience motivated Meighan to volunteer and work in areas near and dear to her heart. She feels particularly passionate about Special Olympics, where she has volunteered as a coach and a mentor to athletes with intellectual disabilities for over 13 years. Meighan’s lived experience of the importance and significance of needing good social policies and programs to help our most vulnerable, motivated her to pursue a Master’s in Public Health. Meighan has worked in a variety of healthcare settings including the Ministry of Health, Covenant Health and Alberta Health Services. Although Meighan loves the meaningful work she does working for the public sector, she recognizes that many barriers exist for individuals and families trying to access the goods and services they need. She is hopeful that with your support, Give for Good will simultaneously foster meaningful giving while connecting vulnerable community members with the goods and services they need.
