Martha Meehan is happy to serve as Stage Right Acting's business manager!

Martha has been inside of the professional performing arts business for many years and brings a unique perspective to the table. Martha also leads and directs drama groups for people with developmental disabilities. Her goal at the studio is to make participation easy and efficient and for parents and students to feel welcome and apart of the "Stage Right Family."
Outside of the studio, Martha is a psychologist/therapist and an adjunct psychology faculty member at Eastern Kentucky University.
