About Springs Native

Headshot home
Meagan Thomas is a 20-something Colorado Springs native with a passion for fashion, fitness, food and wine. With a bachelor’s degree from Baker University, a tiny liberal arts college located in Eastern Kansas, Meagan began working as a breaking news reporter for the Lawrence Journal-World newspaper. After a few short months of living in Lawrence, Kan., she knew her heart was in the Rocky Mountains and made the move back to Colorado.

It took only a few months of being back in the Springs for her to realize how much the city and state are growing and changing. Even though she’s called Colorado home for many years, she loves discovering the best local restaurants, bars, boutiques, fitness studios and events in Colorado Springs and throughout the state. She has a deep belief in supporting the businesses that help make Colorado Springs a unique place to live.
