Meagan Parrish kicked off her career at Advantage Business Media as Chem.Info's intrepid editor in December 2014. In October 2017 she also became editor of Pharmaceutical Processing, a sister site of Chem.Info. Prior to these roles, she spent 12 years working in the journalism biz, including a four-and-a-half year stint as the managing editor of BRAVA, a regional magazine based in Madison, Wis. Meagan graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in international relations and spent a year working toward a master's in international public policy. She has a strong interest in all things global—including energy, economics, politics, and history. As a news junkie, she thinks it's an exciting time to be working in the world of manufacturing.
