Professional Interests

As Teacher Education Specialist, Megan leads professional development workshops and field experiences for educators (and sometimes students) across the state. Megan is passionate about spending time outdoors and inspiring others to explore their connections to the natural world. She believes in the power of optimism, curiosity, and hands-on- experiences—at each opportunity, helping to ignite the spark of curiosity and the sense of wonder for teachers, students, parents, and members of the public.

When not working, Megan enjoys biking and jogging along local greenways and trails, hiking and backpacking near and far, exploring farmers markets, cooking and baking, and digging in the dirt in her garden. She never has enough time to explore--- there are so many places to go!
