Born and raised in the Finger Lakes, Meg lived in southern California and then England for many years before returning to her roots and the Finger Lakes lifestyle. With over 40 years of experience in the hospitality and travel and tourism industry, she loves to spread the good word about the Finger Lakes and is always discovering new things to see and do right in her own backyard. Meg takes a special interest in the region’s arts and cultural scene and attending a play, concert, gallery opening or setting up her easel for painting plein air are some of her favorite things to do. A coffee aficionado, she searches out the best places for a cappuccino and is always happy to advise where to get your next caffeine fix.
