Meg Sharp Walton is a visionary change agent who began her museum career at the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island National Monument. She has her Masters in History from Temple University. 

During her tenure as Executive Director at Glen Foerd Conservation Corporation, she directed the transformation of the riverfront park and historic site into a community-centered asset through new and innovative partnerships, site interpretation, and programs and initiatives that expanded appreciation for the historic site and connected it to relevant and contemporary interests and concerns. Achievements include the establishment of an artists-in-residence program funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, immersive environmental stewardship programs, and recognition from the City of Philadelphia for programs serving adults with intellectual disabilities. 

As Executive Director of the Monmouth County Historical Association, Meg increased the impact and raised awareness of the Association through relevant programs and initiatives that engaged new and diverse audiences. Achievements include the development of a plan to reinterpret the Association's colonial-era historic sites to tell the stories of the enslaved individuals who lived and worked on the properties. This project received the Giles R. Wright Award from the New Jersey Historical Commission. Another was an oral history project to capture the untold stories of historically marginalized communities. Meg directed the development and implementation of a critically acclaimed historical exhibition on Bruce Springsteen’s life, career, and ancestral ties to Monmouth County.
