Meet the Team

Meagen Anderson

Founder, Executive Director


Meagen Anderson founded Hop Forward as a way to share the blissful experience of discovering and developing one's Consciousness. In 2018 she discovered Transcendental Meditation. Soon after practicing TM, Meagen recovered her health and began to experience the benefits of being more resilient, balanced, and intentional. She was drawn to the functional application of the technologies of Consciousness in communities and organizations. Meagen is active in her growth, pursuing a MBA in Sustainable Business at the Maharishi International University in combination with Consciousness Consultant training with the esteemed Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PHD, MARR.

Meagen has experience in leadership, business development, and education through building teams, creating and hosting sensory education experiences, and crafting deep connections through beverage. Meagen has commercial expertise in cannabis, hops, brewing, craft beverage development, terpene sensory education, and a zero-proof lifestyle. She loves spending time with her two beautiful children and is grateful to be able to give them the gift of consciousness and help nurture their own creative expression.
