Meghan is a lifelong resident of the Mississippi Gulf Coast where she not only enjoys boating, fishing and tennis, but sampling the local cuisine and libations the Coast has to offer. She has been married for 16 years to Jonathan Butterfield and they have 3 precious children, Mason (4) and “the buttercups” Merrin and Reeves (2)! Before heading off to USM, Meghan attended MGCCC where she played soccer and tennis. She went on to graduate from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Paralegal Law degree and a minor in Business Administration. She then attended William Carey University where she received her Master’s in Business Administration. She was in Banking for 9 years before opening her apparel and gift boutique located in Gulfport called The Radish Loft. That business has been flourishing for the last 10 years. Meghan has always been very involved in volunteering and Mardi Gras. She is a member of Fatima Catholic Church in Biloxi and there are not very many local organizations she has not volunteered. She is most proud of being a Life Member of the Junior Auxiliary of Biloxi-Ocean Springs where she has held the positions of President, Finance Chair, and Public Relations Officer. Meghan and her husband are currently members of the Gulf Coast Carnival Association; which is the largest Mardi Gras Krewe in Mississippi!
Getting to know Meghan:
What made you decide to get your Real Estate License? While in the banking sector, I was always interested in anything regarding real estate. What really sparked my interest was buying and selling and renovating a few of our own properties. I thought to myself…I really love this! So, with a “gentle nudge” from my husband, I went for it. After my first real estate course, I was hooked. It brought me back to my years in banking and ignited something in me. I knew then that it was going to be the perfect fit for me!
What do you like best about living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast? I think what I love most about living on the Mississippi Coast, is there is always something fun to do, but in a quaint atmosphere. The eclectic little beach towns and southern charm would make anyone want to live here! And if you’re ever craving that big city feel, you’re just a hop, skip and jump away!
