Welcome! I’m Meghan. This site was formerly known as Soulshine Traveler and was focused primarily on my international travels, volunteerism, and work in microfinance (name inspired by the Allman Brothers’ song).
My online home-base is now called Altrunomics. From now on I’ll be discussing my interest in microfinance, sustainability, writing, travel, feminism, finance, and — you guessed it– altruism and economics.
Soulshine Traveler came about when I decided to leave finance for a while, see some of the world beyond the United States, and pursue more purposeful work. I worked as a volunteer in Lima, Peru; Yaroslavl, Russia; Cartagena, Colombia. For a little over a year, I worked for a microfinance organization in Tbilisi, Georgia.
I currently live in Manhattan and work in asset management. Specifically, I work on Sustainability in commercial real estate investment.
