Meghan, originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia, began her acting career in Hawaii before moving to Los Angeles. Growing up, sports played a significant role in her life. She began playing soccer at the age of 5. She played throughout her high school and college years and went on to coach high school and youth soccer. She also worked as a teacher for children with special needs.
In September of 2008, Meghan was asked by producer/director, Ray Johnston to be part of a documentary on modern day Africa. This remarkable journey had a profound effect on her. She had the opportunity to visit with the Massai and Samburu Tribes, learned about their culture, and shared her soccer skills and knowledge with the children at Mama Na Dada. After hearing from the male teachers in the village that the girls were considered too slow and too weak to play sports, Meghan realized the journey for women in Africa was a very different one from what she knew growing up in America, the land of opportunity. Meghan understood that through soccer these women could become empowered. Combining her love of soccer and working with children led Meghan to create the first girls soccer team at Mama Na Dada. Many life lessons and parallels can be learned on the playing field. The passion and freedom soccer brought to her life enabled her to gain a sense of discipline, motivation, and self worth. It is Meghan's hope that through the game of soccer these women and children will learn some of the lessons she learned and attain their goals in life no matter how difficult.
After one month in Kenya, Meghan returned to Los Angeles to spread awareness for Mama Na Dada and raise funds to make the soccer team a reality. She shared her story with the producers of Ryan Seacrest's TV show, "Bank of Hollywood." She became a contestant on the show and won $22,000 for the Mama Na Dada Soccer Team and The Circle of Hope Day Care.
After seeing the tremendous impact that the donation had on Mama Na Dada and realizing that so much more is needed, Meghan decided to launch Noonetime Charities to continue to financially support Mama Na Dada and other orphanages in Africa in desperate need of funding.
