“In 2012, my husband lost a childhood best friend – a former Marine – to suicide. If through Boot Campaign we are able to save one life, that’s one family who won’t have to hold the title of ‘White Star Family.’ I’m honored to be able to connect the dots for veterans to find the root cause of the issues plaguing them every day and return them to their personal 100%.”
The wife of a Retired Marine Corps Staff Sergeant, and daughter and granddaughter to two military veterans, Meg is no stranger to the role our U.S. service members play and the impact that service can have on their lives. Meg, who serves as Boot Campaign’s Program and Partnership Director, saw firsthand the importance of post-service assistance when her now-husband was severely injured in Afghanistan and they were relocated to Washington D.C. for his lengthy recovery.
With over eight years in the military nonprofit space, Meg laces up as the organization’s “Chief Elf” ensuring military families receive gifts and assistance during the holidays through Boot Campaign’s Santa Boots program, as well as spearheads our grant writing efforts and assists in stewarding corporate partnerships.
