Meg Hirschberg, author of FOR BETTER OR FOR WORK

Meg Hirshberg grew up outside New York City and graduated from Brown University with a degree in Comparative Literature.

After college she moved to California to work on an organic farm.  For three years she ran a science education garden for elementary school children.

Her interest in organic growing led her to get a Master’s degree from Cornell Agriculture School.

Eventually Meg moved to New Hampshire and married Gary Hirshberg, founder and current President and CEO of Stonyfield Yogurt, whom she’d met at an organic farming conference.  With about $350 million in sales, it is the largest organic yogurt company in the world

After Meg stopped working in the business, she wrote two yogurt cookbooks, and launched a career in freelance nonfiction feature writing for magazines.

Meg enjoys gardening, going for long walks and teaching nonfiction writing at a community college.  Meg and Gary have three children.
