Meet the Pharma Manufacturing team
Karen currently serves as Pharma Manufacturing's Chief Content Director. Formerly the Editor-in-Chief of Food Manufacturing magazine, Karen was particularly successful at eating all of the snacks that were mailed to her from food companies, as well as reaching readers through the magazine's digital platforms, launching the brand's first daily newsletter. She made the decision to trade food for drugs in 2013, when she joined Putman Media as the Digital Content Manager for Pharma Manufacturing.
Karen graduated with honors from Bucknell University, where she played Division 1 softball and occasionally did some schoolwork. Happily living in NJ's famed Asbury Park, Karen is a retired Garden State Rollergirl, known to the roller derby community as the "Predator-in-Chief."
Meagan Parrish launched her career at Pharma Manufacturing as the senior editor in January 2018. Prior to this role, Meagan worked as an editor for Chem.Info and Pharmaceutical Processing, as well as senior reporter for five other manufacturing brands.
Meagan also spent nearly five years as managing editor of a regional women’s magazine based in Madison, Wis. as well as numerous years as a freelance writer before that. As an intensely curious editor and news junkie, she gets a thrill from writing about any topic under the sun and loves covering hot-button issues of the day.
Meagan graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in international relations and spent a year working toward a master's in international public policy.
