MEGAN ALLINSON

Marketing and Communications Chair

What do you do professionally? 

For the past 20 years I have been working in marketing and advertising across multiple industries. Within marketing and advertising, my main focus is developing marketing communication strategies for clients and overseeing creative execution. I currently work for a small marketing firm in Hingham with a

focus on the financial and banking industry.

 

Tell us about yourself.

My husband and I moved to Marshfield in 2014 after spending many years in New York City and Boston. We love being by the water! Neither of us grew up in the Massachusetts area so we are ‘transplants’. Our son, Thomas, is a 1st grader at GWS and is full of life! Never a dull moment. We also have two dogs, fish, and a lizard. As a family we love the outdoors, the water, skiing, but most of all having fun and supporting each other. Running is probably my favorite pastime activity. It keeps me sane and healthy! I’m also currently doing a Yoga Teacher Training to become a certified yoga teacher, something I’ve always wanted to do.

 

How did you get involved with MEF?

I first became involved with MEF in early 2020 – just before the pandemic. I joined the marketing committee as an at-large member. My first real involvement was helping to get a capital campaign (now Fall Giving) off the ground in lieu of so many events being canceled. I later moved into a board seat and became quite involved with the St. Patrick’s 5k and figuring out what that would look like as a virtual race during Covid.

 

What is your role/responsibilities?

I am currently the Marketing and Communications Chair for MEF. In this role. I lead the organization’s core marketing efforts which are aimed at continuing to build awareness for MEF and all that we do for the Marshfield Public School District to support innovation and creativity in the classrooms. The marketing committee is extremely active in supporting all of MEF’s fundraising events such as Fall Giving, the Marshfield St. Patrick’s Day 5k, and Circus Smirkus to ensure that the events have all the promotional support they need while also build awareness for MEF. I’ve also been involved in developing our annual impact statement and helping in sponsorship development.

 

What do you like about being involved in MEF?

For many years I’ve been involved with supporting non-profits. The opportunity to be a part of MEF is extremely rewarding. I feel extremely grateful to be a part of such a wonderful organization. I love being able to use my professional skills to help an organization so dedicated to the success of students succeed and make such a meaningful impact on the school district, our teachers and staff, and most of all students. I love that I can say I’m part of an organization that is helping to better our future.

What has been the highlight of your involvement with MEF?

There are so many highlights! I think I’d have to say my highlight so far has been being involved with launching the first Fall Giving campaign and helping to bring that idea to life.


What is your favorite memory from your K-12 education?

My favorite memories are probably from high school and having the opportunity to go abroad one summer for cultural enrichment. It was also a time where I met some of my very best friends, whom I’m still close with today. I was fortunate enough to go to a high school that set me up well for college so that I didn’t feel overwhelmed when I got there.
