Meagan Parrish
Editor

Meagan Parrish kicked off her career at Advantage Business Media as Chem.Info's intrepid editor in December 2014. Prior to this role, she spent 12 years working in the journalism biz, including a four-and-a-half year stint as the managing editor of BRAVA, a regional magazine based in Madison, Wis. Meagan graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in international relations and spent a year working toward a master's in international public policy. She has a strong interest in all things global — including energy, economics, politics and history.
