About Meghan


Rule breaker. Idea generator. Catalyst for what's possible.

Meghan Lazier uses marketing and communications strategy to help solve some of the world's biggest and most complicated problems. Whether it's managing a multimedia campaign that integrates new technology, giving creative direction to a documentary film or organizing an outreach event, Meghan has a track record of successfully implementing complex media and strategic communications projects across diverse cultures. Meghan prides herself on breaking a few rules, when it counts, in order to generate innovative results.

Meghan's current and previous clients include the International Red Cross, the British Embassy, the U.S. Military, the Afghan Ministry of Energy and Water, Unreasonable at Sea, the Armenian Eye Care Project and various USAID funded projects, in addition to an upscale drink brand and global swimwear company. Meghan started her career at National Geographic and later moved to positions at ABC News, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation and the American Bar Association. Her writing has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business and the Daily Muse.

Her adventures, both personal and professional, have led her to nearly 30 countries, a six-month, 2,000 mile hike on the Appalachian Trail and a trek through the Annapurna Mountains in Nepal. In her free time, she organized the first-ever TEDx event in Kabul. She received a B.A. from Eureka College (with a 4.0 GPA – some rules she doesn't break) and was a Fulbright Scholar in Hong Kong. She is currently an MFA student at the School of Visual Arts studying Design for Social Innovation.
