Social and digital content strategist Meaghan Milliorn spends much of her day planning content for the university’s social media channels and assisting departments and students with their web and social marketing needs. She graduated from UALR in 2008 with a B.A. in journalism and returned to the university in 2009 to work in the Office of Communications. Meaghan loves social media and interacting with students, alums, and the community through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the Sights and Sounds blog. When she isn’t pouring over Facebook insights and creating ads to reach thousands of people, she enjoys trying out new restaurants with her husband and playing with her two young sons.
