Having lived in both the rural midwest and New York, Meghann intended to visit the family's southern Oregon winery/BnB for two weeks in May 2020, but ended up falling in love with the area and making Oregon her home.

Meghann's favorite wine is Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region of New Zealand.
