“This was such a special project. I spent six months working closely with the team to research, concept, and script these films, and it all began by speaking with families who had adopted teens from foster care. These conversations ran the gamut from tear-jerking to hilarious, and it was ...important to me that our work captured that full spectrum of emotion. Not just the emotional resonance of their stories, but also the vitality, joy, and spirit of these families.” Meghan Frederico

1.)What's your favorite thing about working for DG

3.) Where can we find you on a day off?
On a day off I’m probably at a theme park (Universal Studios Hollywood or Disneyland) or checking out the theater scene in LA. I absolutely love swimming and writing (can be anything from screenplays to editing others’ works), cooking has been something that’s been growing on me, and critiquing films.
