Meg Ellefson grew up in St. Paul, MN and graduated from St. Catherine University with a degree in speech communications. She has worked in information technology as well as sales and marketing for several years.
She and her husband moved their family from the Twin Cities to Wausau in 2006, when his company transferred him to Wisconsin. As a young mom, she got involved in conservative politics and in 2009, founded the Wausau Tea Party in response to the irresponsible, harmful and unrestrained conduct of our elected officials. She is the director of Get Involved Wisconsin, Inc, a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to mobilizing citizens to participate and take action to address local issues affecting our way of life in Wisconsin. She believes that it’s important for citizens to be engaged and to pay close attention to the actions of local government officials and to hold them accountable.
She enjoys the outdoors, running/fitness and listening to 70s/80s music and live bands. If her dad (who was the most influential person in her life and encouraged her interest in politics) were still alive today, he’d be thrilled that she’s finally found her dream job as the host of the WSAU Morning News and The Meg Ellefson Show.
