/ MEAGAN BEASLEY

PRODUCTION COORDINATOR

Meagan is our team member with an affinity for organization, efficiency, and streamlined operational systems. She joined the Asher team with over 10 years of professional project management experience, and has a lifelong love of the arts. As our Production Coordinator, Meagan currently supports talent and client contacting needs and oversees our social media engagement efforts. On the average day, you can find her busy behind her computer screen or providing logistical event support during our large scale corporate events. If you ask her about her favorite Asher memory, she will probably be torn between the time she helped navigate dancing Santa’s Elves in a 10,000 person crowd, or the time she helped blood-splatter talent for an interactive haunted house event in the Hollywood Hills. Needless to say, her favorite thing about working with Asher is watching all the behind-the-scenes magic come to life.
