Lives In

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

  • Meg St-Esprit, M. Ed., is a Pittsburgh-based journalist covering parenting, family travel, and education. As she traverses the country with her four kids, she loves to find the unique and interesting gems at each of their stops. 
  • Meg's work has appeared in Fodor's, The New York Times, the Washington Post, and more. She is a lifestyle writer for Romper. 
  • Meg enjoys teaching writing and journalism classes to community members in Pittsburgh-- ranging from coaching fourth-graders through their first personal essay to leading workshops on how to navigate affordable housing. 


All of Meg's earliest memories center around travel with her parents and twin younger brothers. From bathing in a cooler as a toddler, camping on Cape Cod, snorkeling off the coast of Mexico, and zip-lining through the Rocky Mountains, she hasn't sat still often. Now as a parent of four kids under ten, she wants to impart the same experiences to them. 

She's written about what it's like to stay in a tiny house with four kids, about pulling her kids out of virtual school to hit the road and homeschool during the pandemic, and about glamping in the middle of the Poconos with a bucket toilet.
