Meghan Crowell

Growing up, Meghan always knew that her life's work would provide her with a platform for making a difference in women and children's lives. Meghan majored in Government and Women’s Studies at St. Mary’s College of California. She continued on to study law at Golden Gate University. After working many years for the United States District Court, Meghan relocated to London. There, she continued her legal studies earning double Master’s degrees in banking law (LLM) and globalization and women’s rights (MA) at Queen Mary College and City College of London, respectively. While living abroad, Meghan continued her advocacy by working with international organizations providing micro-financing opportunities to women in Africa and Asia. Upon her return to the Bay Area, Meghan quickly learned of real and pressing needs within her own community and began working tirelessly with a number of Bay Area not-for-profit organizations, including Samaritan House, CORA, and There With Care. She is committed to doing her part as a community leader to leave this world a better place than she found it. On a personal note, Meghan enjoys spending time with her friends and family, preferably with lots of laughter and good food.
