The Board of Directors of Arts Herndon (AH) is expanding by three. At the monthly board meeting on March 8, directors approved the appointment of Megan Dubois of George Mason University’s Center for the Arts; Michael Lloyd, of Kaiser Permanente; and Beth Meyer, owner of Green Lizard Cycling in downtown Herndon.
Megan DuBois grew up in Northern Virginia, and lived in Herndon for much of her life. A graduate of Washington and Jefferson College, Megan received a master’s degree in arts management at Carnegie Mellon University. Her professional background included management and administrative work at The Barns at Wolftrap and the Maryland Symphony Orchestra, before she settled at George Mason University as front of the house manager and volunteer coordinator. Megan is a violinist and lover of all things historical.
With her husband, Dave, Beth Meyer owns Green Lizard Cycling and Espresso Bar in Herndon. A veteran fundraiser, her passion for the arts and for her adopted town of Herndon has led her to Arts Herndon, where she is already planning bike-a-thons, opens her shop doors for Third Thursdays (the new monthly outdoor summer arts event in Herndon’s historic downtown), and loves to provide Lizard-themed children’s crafts for the Herndon Festival. She can usually be found serving coffee and beer at the Green Lizard or riding her bike on the W&OD Trail.
Michael Lloyd grew up in Bridgeport, WV, and attended West Virginia University. He received his master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame, and holds CPA and CCIM certifications. Most of his career has been in health care finance, from his job as a bill collector in rural West Virginia hospital, to becoming a hospital administrator in Pennsylvania.
Subsequent positions included CFO of insurance companies in Washington, DC and Chicago, Illinois.
He moved back to the D.C. area to join Kaiser Permanente in 2007 and oversees financial, administrative and operational activities at Kaiser Permanente’s 10 Northern Virginia medical centers.
Michael Lloyd also spent several years in the commercial real estate industry while in Chicago where he gained experience in building sales and purchases, construction and leasing.
He has been a Herndon resident since 2009 and his dog River is included in the Town of Herndon mural commissioned by Arts Herndon, which was completed in 2014 on one side of the Dominion Animal Hospital. (River is the dog with the soccer ball.)
Michael O’Reilly, of the O’Reilly Law Firm and president of the Arts Herndon Board, is delighted to welcome such a talented pool of volunteers to the Arts Herndon Board. “We have spent some time considering what skills and talents would best serve our mission and augment the talents we have on our seasoned board. These professionals bring new skills and insights to Arts Herndon.” Executive Director Signe Friedrichs noted, “We are delighted and honored that these three new board members have volunteered their time, skills, and their passion for Herndon and the Arts.”
