Meg worked as a community organizer, an adult educator, and a publishing-industry freelancer before launching her children and moving to Waco, where she completed her Master’s degree in Social Work at Baylor in 2018. Having walked through many challenges with disabled loved ones over the years, Meg was in search of strategies to reduce barriers to full community participation for disabled neighbors and their caregivers. So she launched the Amberley Collaborative, which was renamed Mobilize Waco in 2023. Meg is now a social worker with AccentCare Home Health, while continuing to build Mobilize Waco and enjoying life with her husband, their adult children, and their new granddaughter.
