Megan has been passionate about animals for as long as she can remember. It is and always has been her ultimate life goal to dedicate as much of her time as possible to animals. She spent many years volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation center as well as visiting the local animal shelter to play with the dogs. She currently shares her home with a Landseer Newfoundland named Doogie, a cat named Rogue, 4 reptiles and a colony of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches.
School: Washington State University
Animals have always been a passion of mine ever since I can remember – when I was little I wanted to turn into a lion when I grew up, but when reality hit that this wasn’t a possibility, I went for the next best thing! I graduated from Washington State University in 2014, with a degree in Zoology. My whole life I dreamt of going to South Africa, and in the summer of 2013, my dream finally came true. I did a volunteer project on a private reserve, helping the staff collect data and preserve the life of the animals that inhabited there. This sparked in me the desire to work in the animal field even more, and my hopes are to continue learning and growing in the animal health care field and eventually get involved even more in wildlife conservation. Until then, I am enjoying my time here at VCA, and am a proud parent of my two cats Chloe and Naomi.
