Meg York works at boutique editorial agency Silent Models as Junior Booker and Assistant to the CEO.  Between its Paris and New York offices, Silent represents Isabeli Fontana, Carmen Kass, Ana Beatriz Barros, Anna Selezneva, and Snejana Onopka. As the New York office opened this summer, Silent has been an incredible learning opportunity for Meg, giving her the comprehensive experience of launching a new business in a competitive marketplace. With the CEO, she is involved in the day-to-day finance and operations that ensure long-term profitability. Training as Junior Booker, she works under the Creative Directors whose vision and style set Silent apart.

Meg spent the last few weeks coordinating visas, flights, and accommodations for 15 models, creating show packages, and scheduling castings in preparation for New York Fashion Week. She particularly looks forward to tweeting while new face Colinne walks exclusively for Calvin Klein.

Meg graduated from the College in 2010 with Majors in Biology and Political Science and Minor in Psychology. At Penn, Meg enjoyed researching for Professor Weisiger, coordinating the Cardiology Pipeline at Sayre as an Access Science Fellow, planning the “Bio-B-Q” with the Biology Student Advisory Board, and tap dancing as Emily Sachs Dance Benefit Chair and Show Chair for Soundworks Tap Factory.
