Meghann received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with a Minor in Women’s Studies from the University of Maine, Orono. After graduating from college, Meghann returned to school at the New England Culinary Institute to pursue a culinary certificate degree. She went on to run her own baking business and ended up moving to Colorado and running the admissions program for Cook Street School of Culinary Arts, as their Director of Admissions. Throughout Meghann’s life, she has always had a love for food and nutrition and has been more and more inspired as she has opened Seedlings to Sunflowers.
Meghann has been involved with working with children throughout her life. She helped run a before and after care program at the YMCA in Bangor, Maine during college and nannied during summers. While living in Colorado, she was heavily involved in the Slow Food Denver School Garden Project and helped elementary and middle schools create school gardens for their campuses. When Meghann had her own children, she started a food blog called “Feeding Bebe” focusing on introducing nutrient dense foods to children. Now with two growing boys, she has included them in the preparation of meals and the importance of health & wellness.
Meghann’s role at Seedlings to Sunflowers has shifted and she now oversees the foundation of the program. She is on the Policy Committee for MaineAEYC and has been working with the State and DOE to move public access to Pre-K forward. She hopes to continue to advocate for this field, seeking to support both educators and parents during these first formative years of life. She is excited about what is next to come for this beautiful community!
Meghann shares a home in Westbrook, Maine with her husband, Donny, their two boys, Isa & Luca and their dog, Oskar.

In the past, I’ve worked in the grocery business as store leadership and have worked with local farmers and producers across New England to get their products on grocery store shelves.
After graduating with a degree in biology, I worked as a farm apprentice on an organic farm in central Maine where my love of gardening was born.
My favorite part of being the Garden Coordinator is watching the simple joy in kids as they witness growth of a plant from seed to harvest. I hope to influence a lifelong appreciation for gardening in our S2S kids.
As of recently, I have become a dance teacher to ages 4-9. My love for teaching has grown over the years. Being able to connect and see kids grow, makes me so happy! I’m excited to start this new journey at Seedlings to Sunflowers and see where it takes me!
In my free time, I am a decent roller derby player, an amateur surfer, and an intermediate seamstress. I love to be outside, be creative, and be myself. I hope to instill the same love dof the outdoors, creativity, and one’s self in children in my care.”
I like to think of myself as a compassionate, patient,responsible, determined person. I’m an old soul in a young person’s body. I love living in a state where we are fortunate enough to experience all four seasons. I was born and raised here and I don’t think I will ever live anywhere else.
Some things to know about me: I’m completely obsessed with all of my fur babies. I married my H.S. sweetheart on 8/18/18. Sunflowers are my favorite flower. I love hiking and being outdoors. My husband and I had our miracle IVF baby, Gunner John on 3/1/22. In my free time, you can find me in my gardens, collecting sea glass, or reading a book. I’m so happy to be a part of this amazing community!
In her free time, you can find Destiney spending time with friends and family and her 4 cats at home. She likes being outside during Spring through Fall (anytime it’s warm out) and going to the lake!
My two sons, Milo and Leroy both attend S2S. As a family, we enjoy spending time outdoors, especially at the beach and local hiking trails!
I grew up in the Windham and Standish area and I now live in Gorham with my son and 2 cats. I enjoy doing various activities throughout the summer and also working around my house. I’m a very outdoorsy person during the summer months…anything from camping, listening to live bands, dancing, and rides in my Jeep. In my spare time, I make handmade jewelry and have also started a small Etsy page for it.
I also enjoy foraging for wild mushrooms and plants- I study holistic medicine and work with the plants and their powerful medicine. Feel free to ask me about my natural baby powder or diaper rash cream that I offer.
I came into the childcare business so I could teach them how to learn, grow, and spark their own inner creative personality.
Leah and her husband have two children and have lived in Gorham for the past 10 years. Prior to living in Maine, they lived in the White Mountains of NH. Leah hails from the midwestern state of Indiana where she and her family travel annually to share time with family.
Melissa and her husband moved back home to Maine in 2017 from Denver Colorado so they could raise their 2 daughters closer to family and enjoy the outdoors that only Maine can offer.
