Meaghin Woolie

LaSPACE Program Manager

Meaghin Woolie joined the LaSPACE fam as the Program Manager in October of 2018. She earned her BA in International Studies and Spanish before pursuing her MA in International Education. Meaghin has a passion for providing access to education and support for underserved communities. Her ultimate goal is to found an organization dedicated to assisting adult refugees and immigrants integrate into their new communities. When not working as a muggle at Hogwarts (aka the Phys. & Astr. Department), Meaghin loves living her best life as a plant mom (too many “children” to count), cooking/eating delicious food (let’s be honest, emphasis on eating), and traveling around the world (when not in a pandemic). She speaks English, Spanish, and French (rustily) and is learning German. She is terrible with pop culture knowledge, regularly mishears song lyrics, and enjoys feeding the neighborhood squirrels.
