Your friendly neighborhood journalist,
Meagan covers local news for Patch in downtown Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Leander and Pflugerville.
About Meagan: I was born and raised in Corpus Christi and spent three years covering the latest news and things to do in South Texas before moving to the Austin subway. When I’m not reporting the news, I’m reading a good book, tending to my garden, and spending time with my puppy. I’m new to the green thumb, so if you all have any gardening tips I’d love to.
Got a tip or suggestion for an upcoming Austin Daily? contact me at [email protected].
