About Tina Meier

Tina Meier grew up in St. Charles, Missouri and graduated from St. Charles West High School in 1988. Tina's firstborn child, Megan came into the world on November 6, 1992, and her second daughter, Allison was born on May 31, 1996. Her life was complete.


Everything changed on October 16, 2006, when Tina's 13-year-old daughter, Megan Taylor Meier, took her own life after being cyberbullied by an adult neighbor posing as a fictitious boy named “Josh Evans” on MySpace.  

Tina made it her mission to prevent such tragedies and to help children and families affected by bullying and cyberbullying. In December of 2007, Tina's Aunt Vicki gave her the first $100.00 to open up the Megan Meier Foundation's bank account and apply for 501(c)(3) status. 

Tina's first school presentation on behalf of the Megan Meier Foundation was on December 20, 2007 to over 900 middle school students. Tina's passion is stronger than ever and with the support of staff members, volunteers, her family and close friends, the Foundation has reached over 350,000 students, parents, educators, and professionals across the United States.

This is my life mission now and if there is even one child that struggles with bullying, cyberbullying, or self-harm that is one too many and we must be there to help and support them.
— Tina Meier, Founder and Executive Director of the Megan Meier Foundation
