About Our Co-Host: Meghan Lamb

Meghan Lamb is a 32-year-old survivor of Stage 2B Breast Cancer who loves all things illustration, puns, and Taylor Swift. She loves working on custom pet portraits and artwork that she knows will be especially meaningful to the recipient.

Meghan currently lives in Nashville and is the Director of Marketing for Gilda's Club Middle Tennessee. When she isn't working, she enjoys watching endless amounts of European crime dramas, Harry Styles, and baking.

When asked to reflect on her other hobbies Meghan simply quoted David Rose (Schitt's Creek) and said “I plan on popping a pill, crying a bit, and falling asleep early. So, just a regular weeknight.” Proving her sense of humor is just as top-notch as her art skills.
