Prior to joining Osborn Maledon, Meghan spent nine years with Arizona Public Service Company, serving as its Associate General Counsel of State and Federal Regulatory and then head of APS's regulatory strategy, revenue requirement, and rate design departments. Working in management at APS, Meghan combined her legal expertise with a comprehensive knowledge of the utility business and regulatory environment.

Additional community activities include past membership on the boards of the Phoenix Children's Museum, Ballet Arizona, and the Arizona Opera. Meghan enjoys singing (she is a cantor with her local church) and acting in community theater. She has won an AriZoni Award as Best Actress in a Musical Production for her role as "Tzeitel" in Fiddler on the Roof, and was selected to be the "Arizona Colleen" and honored with the "Anam Cara" award by the Arizona Irish Cultural and Learning Foundation.
