Megan grew up in the heartland and earned her undergraduate degree in Agricultural Economics at the University of Wisconsin before heading West. After exploring several aspects of community organizing, sustainability, and education, Megan earned a Masters Degree at Portland State University, focusing on Community Food Systems and Agroecology.
The last several years, Megan has lived in the Little Applegate Valley on an organic vegetable and seed farm, working as a statewide advocate and educator for socially responsible agriculture. Over time, the training, educating and assisting of the next generation of farmers has became a major focus, and working with Rogue Farm Corps is a perfect fit. She is now living and working on an 86-acre ranch with her brothers as they establish their farm business and creamery.
Megan is currently serving on the Sustainable Agriculture Education Association Steering Council and was a 2013 Toyota Together Green Fellow. When not at work, Megan likes to dig in the dirt, walk in the woods, visit the city, take in some music, and spend time with family and friends.
