On working at Next Street

“This country’s wealth gap is massive and increasing. I’m at Next Street because the firm works to address this gap by driving inclusive solutions, centering its focus on small business as the driver of economic growth nationwide. Every one of my colleagues comes to work each day ready to roll up sleeves and work hard to address these community development challenges.”

Outside of Next Street

In her free time, Meaghan enjoys the range of outdoor activities offered by New England seasons, including beach-going in the summer, hiking in the fall, and snowboarding in the winter.
