Megan Finnerty

Megan is a journalist and storytelling consultant, which essentially means she's a professional listener who likes to talk. It’s complicated. Previously a news features reporter for the Arizona Republic for 14 years, she's now the founding director of the Storytellers Brand Studio and the founder of the Storytellers Project – a nationwide series of live storytelling events from Gannett and the USA TODAY NETWORK. A graduate of Purdue University, she feels strongly about feminism, cocktails, and NPR. She prefers a bold lip to a smoky eye.
