Meagan Greentree is a policy wonk who enjoys chewing on public problems. Meagan’s passion for public policy and government decision-making was ignited while she was completing a Bachelor of Music at the University of Victoria, following the Government of British Columbia’s decision to eliminate provincial funding for the arts. Meagan quickly traded in a profession performing opera for a policy career in the public service. Prior to moving to Winnipeg to begin her graduate studies, she held executive leadership positions within a variety of non-profit organizations, and most recently worked as a Training Officer for the Base Logistics Branch, Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Esquimalt.
Meagan is in her second year of the joint Master of Public Administration program at the University of Manitoba/University of Winnipeg. Her broad research and policy interests include national defence, emergency management, and privacy rights/information management in the era of big data. Meagan is currently employed as a Policy Analyst with the Manitoba Government’s Department of Families. She is delighted by the opportunity to work on emerging defence issues with the North American and Arctic Defence and Security Network.
