The Ethan Allen Institute is proud to announce that Meg Hansen has joined our Board of Directors.
Hansen has been deeply involved with Vermont state policy since moving to the Green Mountain State over a decade ago in 2011, falling in love with the region while earning a Master’s Degree in the humanities from Dartmouth College (2014). Since then, Meg has been firmly dedicated to making Vermont a better, freer place for all to live, work and play.
Hansen has been a frequent columnist in Vermont papers, formed her own communications firm, served as a media advisor to the Vermont Republican House Caucus, created a Vermont policy-focused television program called “Dialogues with Meg Hansen,” and was Executive Director of the 501c4 Vermonters for Healthcare Freedom. Meg ran for Lieutenant Governor in 2020, building a statewide following and network of support in the process.
Hansen is trained in medicine (MBBS – British equivalent of an MD). Though she does not practice as a doctor, she is a member of the Vermont Medical Reserve Corps and serves, as needed, at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington.
“We are very excited to have Meg on board,” said EAI president Rob Roper. “With the unstable situation regarding OneCare and state healthcare policy in general, as well as Covid policy, Meg’s medical background will be invaluable. Her experience and savvy creating content on a variety of social media platforms will help take EAI to the next level public connectivity, and we look forward to her bringing into our orbit the many thousands of people Meg has connected with over her career.”
