Meghan Hughes

Assistant Account Manager

When Meghan began her job search, she knew she wanted to find a company that would help her grow both professionally and personally. After discovering Hawthorne, she knew she’d found what she was looking for. Hawthorne’s wide array of clients and collaborative, social atmosphere immediately felt like the right choice.

Prior to joining Hawthorne, Meghan interned for a variety of companies and businesses in Chicago. Before her sophomore year, she interned with a social services organization, The Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council, where she researched target audience demographics and media outreach. While at DePaul, she interned with Beatnik Marketing Group, where she ran several clients’ social media accounts, including a professional MMA fighter. She then interned at DePaul University’s Office of Public Relations and Communications. Meghan worked closely with DePaul’s public relations team to write press releases and provide updates on the university.

Meghan graduated from DePaul in May 2018 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations and Advertising, and a minor in English Literature.

Outside of work, you can find Meghan practicing photography, painting, or reading ­— almost always with a coffee in hand!
