Dianne Jago is a wife and mother of three living on a farm in Central Pennsylvania. She has always desired to use her love for photography and writing “for the kingdom” but never expected it would take the form of a publication. In October of 2013, Dianne felt confirmation that God was calling her to start Deeply Rooted Magazine and in early 2014 the magazine became a reality. Dianne serves as Deeply Rooted’s founder and chief editor where her day to day tasks range from coordinating magazine content to packaging magazines on a daily basis. Aside from the different callings God has given her, you can find Dianne perusing antique shops, gardening, and spending time with her family.

MEGHAN CAUGHILL      |      CREATIVE DIRECTOR     |     CHINA

Meghan Caughill is a graduate of The New England School of Art and Design where she received her BFA in Graphic Design. After living in Pennsylvania for a few years, she and her husband Daniel moved to China where she now teaches English to elementary-aged students. As a designer, she appreciates the beauty of hand crafted work and often finds herself working more off the computer than on. She is a detail-oriented individual who loves seeing what the small things can do for the big picture. When she is not making something with her hands or creating layouts on the computer, she enjoys being in the middle of the woods, exploring new cities, and reading pretty much anything. She hopes to one day write and illustrate children’s books with her husband, but until then she is so excited to be called to serve Deeply Rooted as Graphic Designer.

 

DANIEL CAUGHILL         |        CHIEF COPY EDITOR    |     CHINA

He holds a BA in English and History, and spends most of his time reading, writing, and cooking. He believes taking walks are one of the best things you can do for your mind, and he's happy to be a part of the editing team at Deeply Rooted.
