Megan began working with Animal Balance as a volunteer on the Operation Potcake campaign in 2013. She has always had a passion for helping animals in need and remembers helping her Mom care for stray dogs and cats, and nurse injured wildlife back to health as a child.
After graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Recreation, Megan moved to Bend, Oregon to pursue the outdoor lifestyle. A volunteer opportunity with a local animal welfare organization eventually led Megan to serve as the Executive Director of the Bend Spay+Neuter Project from 2012 to 2018. Her true passion is helping people keep their pets by providing the resources and assistance they need to care for the pets they love so much.
Megan is currently a District Leader volunteer for the Humane Society of The United States in Oregon, and serves as the HSUS Companion Animal Committee Chair for Oregon. She is also a Certified Animal Welfare Administrator (CAWA) and has trained with the ASPCA National Spay/Neuter Response Team. She is owned by three adopted dogs, three adopted cats and six bossy chickens. In her spare time Megan enjoys cat cuddling, dog walking, hiking, surfing and traveling.
