Meghan McGuinness
Vice President

Meghan grew up in the construction industry, following her entrepreneurial parents on jobsites, and watching projects grow from the ground up.

She attended Auburn University and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Biology. After an internship in Primates and employment in the Florida Mammals division at Lowry Park Zoo, she left her passion and officially joined the team in 2003.
