Meg is a designer, lifelong artist, and discerning bad girl. While earning a BA in Sociocultural Anthropology, Meg’s experiences as a queer, working-class academic helped her develop an analysis of systems of oppression that frames her intellectual and spiritual pursuits. As a Pride scholar, Meg went on to earn an AS in Graphic Design. A student of tarot for over a decade, she looks to the cards for personal healing and contemplation. Meg fosters self-love and self-knowledge by drawing on the intersections of her queerness and her woo-ness.
