Megan spent nearly 4 years with the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Texas, before coming on with WLA.
Megan most recently held the title of Grazing Specialist in the Texas panhandle, serving as a liaison to the Texas Grazing Lands Coalition. She has served landowners on multiple scales, providing technical assistance in the field, planning numerous conservation-driven events, and restarting a local GLC after several years of dormancy. She currently serves as Secretary for the Texas Section Society for Range Management and is actively involved in the chapter. Megan has a true passion for agriculture and advocates for youth involvement and education whenever possible. Megan and her fiance currently reside near Amarillo, Texas but retreat to the mountains just outside of Cody, Wyoming in the summers where her partner, Tyler, works on a local ranch. Megan and Tyler have two boys, ages 6 and 7, and enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities in their free time.
