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.
