Meagan and her husband, BJ, have 3 biological children and 1 adopted child ages 7 through 23.  They have fostered 8 children since 2013, and have been heavily involved in the foster and adoptive community by helping to start a local foster care closet, providing support to local foster families through creating online support groups, and seeking to bring other resources to the Clarion area.  Meagan has a degree in Accounting from Clarion University.  After college, she obtained her private teaching certificate in mathematics, and began teaching in a residential treatment facility, where her passion for helping children from hard places grew.  Meagan and BJ became interested in fostering as they felt God asking them to open their home to these children.  Upon adopting their daughter, Meagan began to see the need for more resources in Clarion for vulnerable children and their families.  She transitioned to working from home, where she could be more flexible to meet the needs of her family.  She is excited to help bring the Clarion County Orphan Care Alliance to fruition to assist children and families in the Clarion Community.
