Marketing and Communications Director
Megan Whitworth joined the Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber of Commerce as the Marketing and Communications Director in August 2019.
Megan is responsible for the Chamber’s printed publications, which includes Connect Magazine, Chamber Directory, and press releases for local media, along with Chamber Insider. She also manages the Chamber’s social media sites, among other networking responsibilities.
Prior to joining the Chamber, Megan served as an editor and designer at Polk County Publishing Company from April 2017 to August 2019. While there, she was the editor of the Houston County Courier and the San Jacinto News-Times. She also assisted in launching the quarterly lifestyle magazine, East Texan.
Since she was a young girl, writing and photography have always been a key part to who Megan was. She has been a constant blogger since she was 17, which led to her career launching in the communications field at The Lufkin News in October 2014, where she worked as education reporter and Charm East Texas editor. In 2009, she decided to pursue photography full-time as she fell in love with life behind the lens. She continues to cultivate her craft by capturing local events, weddings, and portraits.
When she is not photographing or writing, Megan enjoys spending time with her family, serving in her Church, taking road trips to Galveston, and reading books.
She resides in Lufkin with her husband, Ryan, daughter, Hazel, and two furbabies, Felix and Lucy.
