Meaghan Smith is the Gold Star sister of USMC LCPL Michael Hogan Smith, who served two tours of duty in Iraq (Ramadi and Fallujah) before losing his battle with PTSD upon returning home. She’s long worked to support active duty servicemembers and veterans, volunteering with a number of VSOs and relentlessly following-up with co-workers to support annual holiday troop drives. Her brother’s passing only reinforced her desire to support our military and their families. She’s also a Senior Vice President with Edelman, a leading global communications marketing firm, where she’s responsible for helping professional services companies articulate their brand value and expertise to key stakeholders. Meaghan is excited to bring the storytelling and relationship-building skills she’s honed over the last 11 years with the company to bear for the NYC Veterans Alliance. She graduated from Boston University Questrom School of Business in 2003.
